The 2017 Atlanta braves baseball season is just around the corner. With new players and a new manager, it seems as if we may have a winning team this season.
With 30 active players on the Atlanta Braves roster, let’s have a quick review over the players and their positions.
With 17 active talented pitchers, the Atlanta Braves are off to a strong start. All 17 of these pitchers have shown off their skills through spring training this year. We all just pray they can keep it up.
As a catcher myself kudos goes to these 2 talented men. Not only is it difficult to catch with many fans behind you and built up pressure, but it takes a lot physically and mentally (constantly squatting and moving up and down, and being able to think ahead of what the opponent’s next move is) With only 2 catchers, Tyler and Kurt have a long season cut out for them.
The infield! With only 8 players making up this 30 man roster, they have some big shoes to fill! Returning players from this 2017 season would be my three favorites Freddie Freeman, Jace Peterson, and Adonis Garcia! Good luck Infielders
Well well well…Looks like there are only 3 outfielders! With only 3 outfielders, these 3 men have a strong position to field.
As the Atlanta Braves under go a huge remodel of not only their team but their field! Come out and support your 2017 Atlanta Braves at the new SUN-TRUST PARK or buy tickets at: http://atlanta.braves.mlb.com/ticketing/index.jsp?c_id=atl
