Atlanta Braves 2020 Opening Day 40-Man Roster

2020 started so brightly, despite losing Josh Donaldson to Minnesota.  Atlanta picked up experienced catcher Travis d'Arnaud, Outfielder Marcell Ozuna and an experienced pitching staff highlighted by Will Smith and Cole Hamels.  However, Atlanta's defence of its NL East crown would be derailed in Spring Training by the worldwide Coronavirus pandemic.  Instead, a shortened season beginning in July was scheduled.  It could still prove to be a year when Atlanta challenges for the big prize, but the shortened nature of the season may provide a surprise or two along the way and will punish any team that makes a slow start.  The team needs to hit the ground running, stay disease and injury free and hopefully will result in a third straight NL East crown.
