4. Marcus Stroman
This is the wild card for the Braves. Perhaps the most sought after pitcher on the market, if he’s healthy. But the health question is a massive question mark. Stroman missed his last start before the All-Star break with a left pectoral issue. This throws a wrench into any plans the Toronto Blue Jays had of moving their prized pitcher.
Prior to his injury, Stroman made 18 starts with an ERA of 3.18. His record is 5-9, but that may not be entirely his fault, the Blue Jays have been a dreadful 34-57 this season. Another advantage to Stroman is he’s under contract for next season, too. That means the Blue Jays will likely be seeking more in terms of prospects, but that is something the Braves have plenty of.
