First baseman Freddie Freeman, second baseman Ozzie Albies, third baseman Josh Donaldson and shortstop Dansby Swanson comprise the starting infield as they have all season. Adeiny Hechavarria joins them as depth. Hechavarria is capable of playing any spot in the infield.
Ronald Acuna, Nick Markakis and Matt Joyce are starting in the outfield. They’re joined by Adam Duvall, Billy Hamilton and Rafael Ortega. The Braves decided to carry Ortega to give them another left-handed bat. Hamilton adds value with his speed on the bases and defense. Duvall has the pinch-hit power the team wanted off the bench.
