MLB News: NL East projected for most wins in 2023

The Atlanta Braves signed their most expensive free agent earlier this week, signing the mighty Jordan Luplow for one year. It marks just the second free agent signing of the offseason, as the Braves remain cool on that front. The club still excelled in other areas, with catcher Sean Murphy in a highly successful trade with the Oakland A’s.

But for the most part, the club has remained stagnant as division rivals bring in superstar-caliber free agents. And it still doesn’t matter because, as currently built, FanGraphs projects that the Braves win more games in 2023 than any other team in both leagues:

After a premature end to the season, the Braves are still expected to be one of the best teams in baseball in 2023 because the front office has done an excellent job retaining core roster pieces. Even going into the offseason, most of the Opening Day roster was set in stone with the only legitimate questions being shortstop, left field and the final spot in the rotation.

The Braves currently have the second best odds of lifting the Commissioner’s Trophy next year, behind only the Los Angeles Dodgers. When a team has most of its impactful players locked up for the next five years or more, offseasons tend to be quiet.

For the most part, Atlanta knows what their team is going to be like. Thus, Las Vegas knows the club will be one of the best in the game, factoring in possible comeback campaigns for Ronald Acuna Jr. and Ozzie Albies. Of course, these projections were made before the Mets signed Carlos Correa. Still, I’m not sure one player, awarded a superstar, will propel New York from No. 4 to the top.

I am a fan of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover big events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), important players’ signatures. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as an amateur. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but baseball is in my veins. Graduated in Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS). , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I arrived at El Debate as a journalist reporter and it took almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to radio, providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and a few days later, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
