  • Braves not ready to part with pitching prospects
    As Alex Anthopoulos moved near the completion of his first full month as the Braves' GM, and experienced the second day of this year's Winter Meetings on Tuesday, he possessed the assets that will likely lead rival executives to continue checking in with him about potential trade opportunities. But for now, Anthopoulos seems content to patiently progress through this Hot Stove Season and possibly wait for the opportunity to see these young pitchers with his own eyes before defining their trade value.

  • Braves' roster quietly undergoing changes
    This has certainly been a unique offseason for the Braves, who were neutralized by the lengthy MLB investigation that led them to gain new leadership within the baseball-operations department.

    For the first time in three years, the top spot on MLBPipeline.com's early Draft Top 50 list is not topped by a high school pitcher.

Right-hander Brady Singer, who helped pitch them to that title as a sophomore, is the clear choice as the best overall talent in the 2018 Draft class.
