2. The Braves Should Avoid Trading Away Ender Inciarte
It is puzzling how quickly Braves nation has seemingly forgotten just how good Inciarte can be. He is a run-saving center fielder who constantly makes plays that few others in the League can. There have been times over the last two seasons he was the team’s best hitter and yet it seems as if there is momentum towards trading the centerfielder.
For those who have forgotten Ender’s last two complete season hit totals have been at 201 and 158. Both impressive numbers for a player with Ender’s fielding capabilities.
Keeping Inciarte on the Braves bench or using him as a platoon option is depth Atlanta needs. Trading him shouldn’t be an option considering what he can bring to Atlanta.
Having Inciarte sitting on the bench or platooning with Nick Markakis is depth Atlanta needs. Depth they so obviously lacked in last year’s postseason series against the Dodgers.
Ender is currently working his way through the minor leagues once healthy Ender shouldn’t be traded despite the success of the current Braves lineup.
