The Atlanta Braves had an incredibly uneventful Thursday. We are, however, in the final stretch of the offseason. Pitchers and catchers are set to report in just under a month, which makes for plenty of upcoming news. Until then, we do have a few notes regarding the Braves.

Braves Notes:

After acquiring Jarred Kelenic this offseason, the Braves’ outfield questions were answered. Now, the club may have one of the best outfields in the league.

Our Hall of Fame profile series continues with outfielder Gary Sheffield.

MLB News:

The Dylan Cease rumors continue, as the right-hander still remains with the Chicago White Sox.
