We are just over a week away from Atlanta Braves pitchers and catchers reporting to the Spring Training site in Florida. With that being said, time is running out for preseason predictions, but not before PECOTA could release their annual projections. PECOTA favors the Braves as World Series winners and gives the club an 18.7% chance to win the 2024 Fall Classic. Not only are the Braves World Series favorites, but PECOTA also projected a 100-win season. This comes as a surprise in comparison to PECOTA’s previous Braves projections, but hopefully this year, the projections will be spot on.
