The Braves are not on a complete skid at the moment, but aren’t having their best stretch at the moment. They are experiencing this less than a week away from the trade deadline. The easy move is to add to the bullpen, which they have already done some with the two trades earlier this week. They could stand to add a starter, although they have some internal returns from injury incoming and lots of depth in AAA. One need that hasn’t been addressed is left field, as Eddie Rosario and Marcell Ozuna are beginning to scuffle at the plate again. Some non-star rental options can typically be added for relatively cheap at the deadline and this can pay big dividends, as we all know first-hand from the Braves’ 2021 experience. The sub-par stretch of play may add a hair of motivation for the front office to make a deadline move. Stay tuned!
