LF,CF,RF - Atlanta Braves
Braves GM Alex Anthopolous said the team is leaning toward playing Jarred Kelenic every day rather than start out in a platoon.
Anthopolous added they believe he’ll benefit more from everyday at-bats, even if he struggles early like Michael Harris II did. Kelenic was traded to the Braves from the Mariners earlier in the offseason, and figures to compete for an every day role in his first season in Atlanta.
The Seattle Mariners have traded Jarred Kelenic to the Atlanta Braves.
This was a big package deal where the Mariners seemingly wanted to move the contracts of Marco Gonzales and Evan White, and had to move Kelenic to do so. After being traded from the Mets to Mariners, he showed flashes in Seattle but could never put it together on a consistent basis. Kelenic will look to develop further in the outfield for Atlanta.
