Which Braves position players should return in 2019?

The Atlanta Braves got younger as the 2018 season progressed. 

The average age of players on the active roster on Opening Day was 29. On the final day of the season the average age was 27. 

On May 1 in New York, the Braves started the three youngest players in the majors: Ozzie Albies (21 years, 114 days); Ronald Acuna, (20 years, 134 days); and Mike Soroka (20 years, 270 days). 

Atlanta used a total of 58 players — two shy of the franchise record set in 2015 — this season. Of those 58 players used, 24 were position players. Two — All-Stars Nick Markakis and Freddie Freeman — appeared in all 162 games. 

The Braves used their youth movement to make their first postseason appearance since 2013.
