During the offseason the Atlanta Braves have made a slew of trades, setting them up for a new future leading into their departure of Turner Field slated for the 2017 season. Despite unloading nearly half the roster, the Braves currently sit at third place in the NL East with an 18-19 record only four games behind the first place Mets with a lot of baseball left to play.
