The Atlanta Braves have been busy so far this off-season. The Phillies have not.Oh sure, re-signing Aaron Nola to a mega-deal allowed and had actually to be done, yet it had not been a new enhancement, so it doesn't really feel like Dave Dombrowski did anything. However let's not rest on that purchase, it was big. It sure seems like they attempted to authorize Yoshinobu Yamamoto, however that was constantly a long-shot. Atlanta, meanwhile, has actually been busy as bees. Here is every rather significant action they've made because the start of the off-season: Chicago White Sox traded LHP Aaron Bummer to Atlanta Braves for RHP Michael Soroka, LHP Jared Shuster, SS Nicky Lopez, SS Braden Shewmake and RHP Riley Gowens.Atlanta Braves traded RHP Kyle Wright to Kansas City Royals for RHP Jackson Kowar.Atlanta Braves traded RHP Cole Phillips and RHP Jackson Kowar to Seattle Mariners for LHP Marco Gonzales, OF Jarred Kelenic and 1B Evan White.Atlanta Braves traded LHP Marco Gonzales and cash money to Pittsburgh Pirates for Player To Be Called Later.Atlanta Braves signed freelance LHP Angel Perdomo.Los Angeles Angels traded C Max Stassi and SS David Fletcher to Atlanta Braves for 1B Evan White and LHP Tyler Thomas.Atlanta Braves traded C Max Stassi and cash to Chicago White Sox for Player To Be Called Later.San Diego Padres traded DH Matt Carpenter, LHP Ray Kerr and money to Atlanta Braves for CF Drew Campbell.Atlanta Braves launched DH Matt Carpenter.Atlanta Braves traded SS Vaughn Grissom to Boston Red Sox for LHP Chris Sale and cash.Here's what the Phillies have actually done: Tampa Bay Rays traded RHP Michael Mercado to Philadelphia Phillies for RHP Adam Leverett and cash.Philadelphia Phillies traded 2B Oliver Dunn to Milwaukee Brewers for LF Hendry Mendez and SS Robert Moore.Philadelphia Phillies authorized freelance RHP Aaron Nola.Aaaand, that's practically it. Of course, if you take a look at the Braves' actions, absolutely nothing actually turns the needle with the exception of their purchase of Chris Sale for young infielder Vaughn Grissom. Sale will certainly be the team's No. 3 starter coming off a season in which he made 20 starts and set up a 4.30 period for the Red Sox. It's a precise improvement, although just how much so remains to be seen, offered his injury background. It is appealing the Braves made this action and offered up Grissom, their skilled young possibility who entered 2023 as the assumed starting shortstop but was beat in the springtime by Orlando Arcia. Arcia finished up making the All Celebrity group by having a career year offensively. Atlanta undoubtedly really feels adequate about Arcia's capability to duplicate that success they could chance and deal away Grissom for an injury-riddled beginning pitcher in his mid-30s. In 2015, the 22-year-old Grissom hit.330/.419/.501 in 468 PAs in AAA, with 8 Humans resources and 36 increases. After 2 straight losses to the Phillies in the local round of the playoffs, the Braves dealt away a highly-regarded young gamer for an aging professional bottle. It's a high-risk move, and one that will certainly pay off nicely if Sale wins them a couple of Video game 3's in the postseason this year.The Phillies are in a comparable win-now setting. Might Dombrowski make a similar trade?The Phils unexpectedly have an excess of center area prospects in the minors that can be made use of to add an essential item to the major league club, especially the bullpen. Johan Rojas really did not hit much after being phoned, however among 109 MLB facility fielders that played at the very least 50 innings because placement, Rojas' 15 Defensive Runs Conserved rated 4th. If he installs also a. 700 OPS over a full period, he's most likely a 3-4 win player. Their leading position gamer prospect is 19-year-old former preliminary choice Justin Crawford, that batted.288/.366/.425 in 82 plate looks in High-A last period and is ticketed for AA Analysis, perhaps as early as the start of the 2024 period. He doesn't have the pedigree of a Grissom, but is a borderline top-100 prospect. Given Rojas' rising, could Crawford be relocated a package for a top-end closer, like Cleveland's Emmanuel Clase? Christian Pache could likewise be a choice, however he has far much less trade worth than Rojas or Crawford. It's unlikely he could return an impact big organization gamer. In regards to pitchers, young fireballer Orion Kerkering or Griff McGarry might be interesting, depending upon the team.Ultimately it would certainly be wonderful if the Phillies really did not need to relocate a young player/prospect in an off-season profession. The goal would certainly be for Rojas' or Pache's bat to boost and use their assets at the trade target date for various other requirements. That said, Atlanta's search of Sale is a possible blueprint for something the Phils can do if the appropriate bargain came.
