The Atlanta Braves have a lot of holes to fill this off-season on a young roster that is looking to take a step forward into contention. This list of free agents would help make the Braves contenders not only for the wildcard but in the NL East.

Adding pitchers if the biggest goal for the Atlanta Braves this off-season but in need of a third baseman and addition to the bench as well the Braves will need to make a lot of moves before the season begins.

This year’s trade and free agent markets are full of targets that the Braves should at least inquire on.  Looking at the Braves roster the clear need will be adding to the rotation that has only Julio Teheran penciled in as a sure starter.

Mike Foltynewicz will likely be a starter as well if he remains with the Braves. The bullpen is full of holes as well considering the struggles that many of the arms in the Braves pen had last season. Third base and adding another power bat on the bench completes the list that the Braves will look to address.

The Braves will have options on the free agent market that can address all of these needs. Here are the free agents that the Braves should be targeting now.
