The Atlanta Braves have already had a busy off-season targeting starting pitching early on and bringing in veteran starters to eat innings. Trading for Jaime Garcia from the Cardinals as well, bringing in more pitching options that they can move if things go wrong around the deadline.

Sean Rodriguez was brought in as well on a two-year deal that will give Jace Peterson and multiple other positions days off and insurance if an injury was to happen. Despite adding insurance the Braves have had their names in trade rumors surrounding Brandon Phillips and Brian Dozier who both could replace Jace and put Peterson in a role that has been filled by Martin Prado and Omar Infante in seasons past.

Chris Sale was another name that the Braves were hot on for a long while trying to bring the lefty ace to Atlanta before the Sox demanded rookie shortstop Dansby Swanson in a return package for Sale.

Even with the additions that the Braves have made they continue to look for ways to make their team better. Here are five moves that the Braves should consider.
