​The one big hole on this ​Atlanta Braves roster is right field, as All-Star outfielder ​Nick Markakis is a free agent and at this moment doesn't seem likely to return.


In an effort to augment that spot, there's a rumor that the Braves are interested in fellow veteran free agent outfielder ​Michael Brantley.

After two seasons of a combined 101 games due to injury, Brantley stayed healthy in 2018 and slashed .309/.364/.486 with 17 home runs and 76 RBI over 143 games. The three-time All-Star looked like his old self last season, and would certainly be a nice addition to a lineup that is looking for more power in their lineup.

​​Giving a player with his injury history and the fact he's 31 years old might be an obstacle in the way of this happening, especially if he wants a three-year deal, but you won't have to break the bank and give up prospect capital to address a need in the corner outfield.


And Brantley's as competent as it gets.
