Relievers the Braves should target for 2019

The Braves are in need of relief help for 2019, and beat writer Mark Bowman lays out some options both internally and externally, including three free agents that could make sense for Atlanta.

Cristian Pache might be next Braves star, but they’re willing to wait

The Braves have another rising star in the outfield, but as Gabe Burns of the AJC writes, the club is willing to wait for him to develop further.

Comparing Acuna and Pache, who turns 20 on Nov. 19, isn’t a fair proposition. Scouts have declared Pache a potential five-tool player like Acuna, but the offense simply isn’t that far along yet.

Yes, Pache is a top-two position prospect in the system and unquestionably will lead the list when third baseman Austin Riley moves up, but Acuna was a rarity.

Belief that Pache could crack the majors in 2019 is optimistic. His defense is stellar, projecting as gold-glove caliber in center, but the offense needs time to catch up.

Braves’ Mike Foltynewicz finishes 8th in Cy Young voting

The Braves were well-represented this awards season, and the Cy Young Award announcement on Wednesday was a continuation of that good fortune. Right-hander Mike Foltynewicz finished 8th in the voting for the NL Cy Young Award after posting his best season to date in his young career.
