Atlanta Braves: Team Preview

It was a mixed bag Fantasy-wise when it came to the Braves in 2014. Freddie Freeman, Justin Upton, Julio Teheran and Craig Kimbrel were the stars of the team and Alex Wood made his case for joining them with a big step forward. Unfortunately, Mike Minor lost his mojo, Brandon Beachy and Kris Medlen missed the season thanks to Tommy John and Dan Uggla decided to take batting advice from B.J. Upton. The real life results were a 79-win season; tied for second with the Mets and just six games ahead of the last place Phillies.

The Braves will have a new look going into the 2015 season. Upton, Jason Heyward and Evan Gattis were all shipped out of town as the Braves attempt to rebuild. In return, the Braves received a number of minor-league prospects, along with a big arm in Shelby Miller. Atlanta also signed a number of veterans like A.J. Pierzynski, Nick Markakis and Jason Grilli to help keep them somewhat competitive in the short term. The big question for our Atlanta Braves team preview is what will the Braves look like in 2015?
