Braves’ infield returns intact, looking to build off strong 2020

The Atlanta Braves are set on the infield as they will return all four starters from 2020 to the lineup. There are still some question marks in regards to infield depth, but barring injury, the same group will be penciled into the lineup on Opening Day as last season.

That almost wasn’t the case in 2020, as Freddie Freeman tested positive for COVID-19 as camp reopened. His status was in question right up to the end of camp. Freeman may have been weakened physically at first but he recovered enough to be in the lineup on Opening Day.
