Today’s Braves Regarding today’s match, Brian Snitker issued a depressing comment.

The Atlanta Braves are starting in a pretty good place with their roster construction for the 2024 season.

Having returned nine of their top ten hitters, 2023’s #1 run-scoring offense should be just as potent in 2024 as it was last year. Adding veteran lefthander Chris Sale strengthens a rotation that was decimated by injury last season but still returns multiple All-Stars and last year’s strikeout leader in Spencer Strider.

But there are questions to be answered about the 5th starter, the configuration of the bench, and the pecking order of the bullpen as we head to the season opener in Philadelphia on March 28th. Braves Today will be projecting who makes the Opening Day roster, updating as needed throughout the Grapefruit League schedule.

(Ground rules: Yes, Atlanta’s played in like six spring training games. Everything’s a small sample size overreaction. Additionally, we’re assuming there are no external adds to the roster between now and Opening Day, when in reality you could see several players that are released by other organizations added after cutdown day and so none of this may even happen. That’s baseball!)

Let’s go through the starters real quick, because there’s no real questions among this group (other than what order to bat them in):
