The two main factors for this: Carlos Beltran’s departure and the lack of any production from Allen Craig whatsoever. This offseason saw no major departures and several upgrades.

Jason Heyward Says All the Right Things While Speaking with St. Louis Media

The Atlanta Braves have been very quiet this winter

A winter that was predicted to be full of change for an Atlanta Braves team fresh off of a 96-66 record and another first round playoff exit has been just that for the reigning NL East champions, but the majority of the moves have been subtractions, not additions.
