The Atlanta Braves off-season is underway and with plenty of holes to fill the Braves will remain active on both the trade and free agent markets. Who could the Braves look to target this off-season in the trade market?

The Atlanta Braves are looking to add pitching and at least one starting level hitter with a hole on the roster at third base. The Braves will likely again attempt to trade for a controllable starter with little to no starting pitching on their roster.

Free agents like Jake Arrieta and Yu Darvish could be on the Braves’ radar but it seems more likely that the Braves will spend some of their wealth of prospects to land a top pitcher through the trade market.

Remaining active in Chris Sale talks last season should give the fans an idea that the Braves will be even more active this off-season as they are a year closer to their goal of getting back to contention.

The Braves could take a look at closing and relief options as well on the trade market with a bullpen with a lot of questions.  No doubt the Atlanta Braves will be one of the most active teams this season under their new leadership. With that in mind here are players that the Braves should target to bring to Atlanta.
