MLB: Atlanta Braves at Washington Nationals Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

FanGraph’s Dan Szymborski has unveiled his 2023 ZiPS for the Atlanta Braves, which projects another successful season.

Here are a few of the highlights:

  • The Braves’ left field situation remains sticky as Eddie Rosario seems to be the man for the job. Regardless, the remainder of the outfield is top tier.
  • Alex Anthopoulos has locked up the majority of the young guys long-term. So far, Dansby Swanson’s departure has been the biggest hit.
  • There are a few unanswered questions about the starting rotation. Who comes after Max Fried and Spencer Strider?
  • The bullpen has some major depth, despite the loss of Tyler Matzek to Tommy John.

Szymborski predicts that “the Braves ought to be one of the teams competing to lead the majors in wins in 2023.”
