MLB Power Rankings: Where All 30 Teams Stand Post-World Series - 2014 Wrap-Up
A disastrous 7-18 month put an end to any hopes the Braves had of making the playoffs this past year, as a lack of consistent offense finally caught up with them and they were outscored 109-59 over the final month.
Outside of Freddie Freeman and Justin Upton, no one could really be counted on at the plate on a game-by-game basis, and that pitching staff was unable to overcome that.
They did a great job early on piecing together their rotation after three starters opened the season on the disabled list, adding Ervin Santana and Aaron Harang to the mix right at the end of spring training. Julio Teheran and Alex Wood ended up being the team's best starters, and they both look to have bright futures ahead of them.
Early 2015 Ranking: 18
The Braves offense desperately needs an overhaul, but they are more or less stuck with the roster they have in place unless they decide to trade Justin Upton or Jason Heyward or can find a way to unload B.J. Upton or Chris Johnson.
The rotation also needs to be addressed this offseason, as Santana and Harang are both free agents, and it's hard to rely on anything from Kris Medlen or Brandon Beachy as they make their way back from a second Tommy John surgery.
With the Marlins and Mets on the rise, and the Braves looking strong once again, this team is in real danger of slipping to the No. 4 spot in the NL East. There is still a lot of talent on this roster, though, and a bounce back season is by no means out of the question.
Atlanta Braves' 5 Most Tradeable Assets for the 2014-15 Offseason - Overall, the 2014 season was a disappointment for Mike Minor as he failed to build upon an excellent 2013 season.
Minor regressed in basically every pitching category from his 2013 season to the 2014 season.
Still, Minor is just the one year removed from a 13-win season in which he produced a 3.21 ERA in 204.2 innings.
The left-hander is still just 26 years old and won't be eligible for free agency until 2018.
I would say it's unlikely that Minor gets traded, but I also don't think he's a lock to be on the roster like Julio Teheran and Alex Wood.
Because of this, Minor comes in at No. 5 on the list.
B/R - Atlanta Braves
Braves’ starting-rotation plans could hinge on Santana - The Braves went from 96 wins and a division title in 2013 to 79 wins and out of the playoffs in 2014, but it was through no fault of their starting pitchers.
Despite losing Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy to season-ending elbow injuries during spring training and Gavin Floyd to another elbow injury after only nine games, Braves starters finished the season ranked fifth in the majors in ERA (3.42), second in innings (1,014 1/3) and fourth in strikeouts (868).
All-Star Julio Teheran and ascendant left-hander Alex Wood will return along with lefty Mike Minor, barring any unexpected developments. That would leave one or two spots open, depending on what happens with free agents Ervin Santana and Aaron Harang, who met – or surpassed, in Harang’s case – most expectations after being emergency signees during spring training.
The Braves haven’t revealed their intentions with either, but are expected to make a $15.3 million qualifying offer to Santana before Monday’s 5 p.m. deadline for te...
