How quickly can you remodel a major-league outfield? Apparently, it’s a DIY project you can knock out in exactly 14 days.
That’s how long it took Atlanta general manager Alex Anthopoulos to revamp an outfield that, due to injury, underperforming and the legal process, was left looking nothing like the one the three-time defending National League East champs broke camp with.
That was a key focus ahead of Friday’s 4 p.m. ET trade deadline, as the Braves brought back Adam Duvall from the Marlins, acquired Eddie Rosario from Cleveland, and in the moments after the proverbial buzzer, came word that they also got Jorge Soler from the Royals.
