A busy week ahead, Collin McHugh and more

The calm before the storm this offseason continued for the Atlanta Braves Sunday as they stayed quiet on the transaction front for a change. The team has much to weigh up over the coming week as it looks to see what cuts and additions it will make to its now full 40-man roster ahead of the November 15 rule 5 draft protection period. We expect several transactions this week to clean up the 40-man list and at least a few prospects protected from the draft Rule 5.

In preparation for the free-agent storm to come, we continued to preview the offseason and highlighted five players who are buy-low candidates for the Braves to add this offseason.

Yesterday was another quiet day in Brave country, but we continued our season recap series with Collin McHugh. McHugh is overshadowed by the world’s Kenley Jansens, Raisel Iglesisases and AJ Minters, but he was an integral part of the Atlanta Braves’ success in 2022.

Also, the All-MLB team vote is currently open, with the Braves having a number of candidates available to receive your ballot. Make sure to vote before voting closes on 11/22!

It wasn’t just quiet in the Atlanta Braves world as we didn’t have much to get excited about in MLB on Sunday. One thing to note is that the Arizona Fall League ended with the Surprise Saguaros triumphantly winning the championship game. While the Braves had no prospects in championship play, they sent several prospects into the AFL this year, with Justyn-Henry Malloy, Austin Smith and Cal Conley doing particularly well.

The rumor mill is churning and the market for Japanese pitcher Kodai Senga is beginning to form. The Giants are shaping up as a potential right-hander contender along with at least eight other teams, although the Giants have some built-in advantages, including being on the West Coast, having plenty of room on their payroll and being motivated to reload that they do potentially losing some key free agents, including Carlos Rodon.
