The MLB season is finally set to restart at the end of the month after more than four months on ice, which means Atlanta Braves fans starved for entertainment can finally get excited about seeing the reigning NL East champions gearing up for a title run in 2020.

The Braves will finally start working out at Truist Park in preparation for the season on Friday, just in time for July 4 weekend. The workout will be done in a group setting, as a limited number of players will be allowed to be at the stadium at one time.

Even though baseball is still a few weeks away, this is still a sign that the Braves will get a crack at the World Series in 2020.

The Braves will once again lean on the strength of their deep, young starting lineup, as Ronald Acuña Jr. and Ozzie Albies will have to make up for a lack of depth in the starting rotation and a bullpen that lacks a true ace closer.

Even during a 60-game season that will take a bit of the endurance out of an MLB season, Acuña and the Braves should once again be at or near the top of the list of NL East favorites in 2020.
