Atlanta Braves earn B+ in The Athletics’ offseason grades

As January comes to an end, our focus turns to pitchers and catchers reporting and the beginning of spring training, it is worth another look back at the offseason as a whole. Tuesday, The Athletic’s MLB writers handed out offseason grades for all 30 teams and the Atlanta Braves came away with a B+.

The Braves had an eventful offseason with the headline move being the acquisition of catcher Sean Murphy in a trade with the Athletics. As they tend to do, Atlanta wasted no time locking Murphy up with a six-year extension. Atlanta also added some depth to the bullpen with the additions of Joe Jimenez and Lucas Luetge.
