The Braves are interested in re-signing Duvall, but he’s now free to explore the market. Losing Duvall weakens the Braves’ in-house depth, though the team was expected to add to its outfield mix with or without Duvall. Slugger Marcell Ozuna is a key piece of the puzzle, with the Braves remaining interested in re-signing Ozuna. When the decision is announced regarding the designated hitter in the National League, Ozuna’s market should be clearer.
In the past two seasons, Duvall hit .248/.307/.545 with 26 homers and 52 RBIs. The Braves acquired Duvall at the 2018 trade deadline, but he played in only 74 games for the team before this past season, when he appeared in 57 of the 60 games.
