by Aaron Rife,

NL EAST

 

Atlanta Braves

Lineup:                                                           Rotation:

Michael Bourn (CF)                                       Tim Hudson

Martin Prado (LF)                                          Jair Jurrjens

Brian McCann (C)                                          Tommy Hanson

Dan Uggla (2B)                                               Brandon Beachy

Freddie Freeman (1B)                                     Mike Minor

Jason Heyward (RF)

Tyler Pastornicky (SS)                                   Bullpen:

Craig Kimbrell (Closer)

Jonny Venters (8th inning)

What They Need:

Their biggest need is at shortstop but it seems that they’ll be going into the season with Tyler Pastornicky manning that spot. There’s talk that their interested in Ronny Cedeno for a backup role; that wouldn’t be the worst backup plan. They’ve also been shopping around Jair Jurrjens and Martin Prado. They’re most likely looking for a Chipper Jones successor and/or a power bat in left field.
