Final Thoughts

Obviously Freddie Freeman is the answer at first base. This is the clearest projection for the Atlanta Braves going forward.  But no front office would be worth their weight if they didn’t keep their eyes open and continue to look around.

As we progress, keep a close eye on the career of Juan Yepez. If he develops like some think he will, and if Freddie Freeman never advances beyond peripheral all-star and consistent bat, things could get interesting at the end of this decade.
