Atlanta ended 2023 with a bang on December 30th with the acquisition of 7-time All-Star Chris Sale. While the Braves had to give up Vaughn Grissom in the process, the Braves definitely made their over pitching staff strong in trading for Sale. Along with potentially being an option to replace Charlie Morton long term should he be successful in 2024, Sale is also another multi-inning option that could be reliable in the postseason. The Braves clearly believe Sale has plenty left in the tank to be a big part of their rotation.

While the Braves have now likely made their big moves of the offseason, January has plenty oof important dates. Along with the deadline to swap arbitration figures on January 12, the international signing period is on January 15th and the 2024 Hall of Fame class is set to be announced on January 23rd.
