The Atlanta Braves outfield has been a source of inconsistency for the team thus far. Adam Duvall’s struggles have been well documented and have tormented Braves fans in 2022. We know he is here to slug and slug he has not. The one tool in his offensive tool belt is missing. He showed up at the job site and left that one at home. If he can’t figure it out then something will have to give.

Ronald Acuna Jr. is easing back into action and we hope he’ll be able to avoid any setbacks and be an everyday player by the end of the season. Considering the nature of his injury and the fact that he has only started in the field in 14 games (as of Saturday 06/04) we still have uncertainty about where he’ll be by season’s end.

How will Michael Harris hold up over a larger sample size? Eddie Rosario doesn’t have a definite timetable, although we are beginning to hear positive reports.
