Atlanta Braves 2021 Opening Day 40-Man Roster

After reaching Game 7 of the 2020 NLCS, the Braves' goal this year is nothing short of the World Series.  Led by reigning MVP Freddie Freeman, the team was buoyed by the return of Marcell Ozuna on a multi-year deal.  Ronald Acuna Jr and Ozzie Albies continue their development into two of the game's best and Travis d'Arnaud with Dansby Swanson round out a top 6 that can rival any team in baseball.  If there is any question it is over the strength of the bench.  Ender Inciarte was trade bait over the winter but with no takers and losing the likes of Adam Duvall and Charlie Culberson has left questions.  Nonetheless, the additions of Charlie Morton and Drew Smyly will strengthen a rotation that was the weak link in the 2020 team.
