Breaking: GM Alex Anthopoulos Explains Why the Atlanta Braves Will Hold Off on Trades For…

When Atlanta Braves superstar Ronald Acuña Jr. suffered an injury, fans immediately urged GM Alex Anthopoulos to make a significant trade. However, there are three key reasons why this isn’t likely to happen anytime soon.

After losing both Spencer Strider and, most recently, Ronald Acuña Jr. for the season, the Braves are facing a challenging road ahead in 2024. Losing one superstar is hard enough, but losing two is devastating.

Despite these setbacks, the Braves still have high expectations. Many fans are calling on Anthopoulos to make a move to offset the losses of Acuña and Strider. While Anthopoulos likely has plans in mind, there are three main reasons why major trades won’t happen immediately.

It’s Still Too Early

Currently, the Atlanta Braves have a 31-23 record and are 6.5 games behind the red-hot Phillies in the NL East. Considering the tough breaks they’ve faced, being within 7 games of the division lead is an achievement in itself.

With 54 games played, there are still 108 games left in the regular season and a little over two months until the trade deadline. In MLB, a lot can change in that time.

Many teams are still determining whether they will be buyers or sellers by the trade deadline. Anthopoulos is likely waiting for a clearer picture of which high-caliber players will be available and who would be the best fit for the Braves. As hard as it may be, fans should trust Anthopoulos and be patient.
