Nov. 29—CUMBERLAND — Truist Park, home of the Atlanta Braves, played host to an all-American sport Saturday. No, not baseball. Not football or basketball, either. The dozens of Cherokee men who took the field Saturday were there to play stickball, an ancient, Native American sport and the centerpiece of the Braves’ four-hour celebration of Cherokee culture, dubbed Cherokee Traditions at Truist …

Max Fried overcame a slow start in 2021 and once again gave the Atlanta Braves a solid top of the rotation option. Fried’s crowning moment came late in the postseason, where he bounced back from a pair of tough outings by tossing six shutout innings in the clincher in Game 6 of the World Series against the Houston Astros. How Acquired The Braves originally acquired Fried in a trade with the San Diego Padres in December 2014.

That is how I view the reunion between Adam Duvall and the Braves, when Atlanta reacquired Duvall for the second time in three years as a part of their outfield makeover. Okay, I am being very dramatic and reaching a bit with the analogy (as a fan of both Marvel and the Braves, it had to be done), but the general point remains. Though Adam Duvall did not start out the season with the Braves, he once again played a big part in their pursuit of the playoffs.

Season in Review Our season in review series continued Saturday with three more player profiles. You can find the entire list here. Orlando Arcia Johan Camargo Darius Vines Braves Podcasts MLB News The New York Mets agreed to a four-year, $78 million deal with 33-year old outfielder Starling Marte Friday night.

Expectations/Projections The expectations for Johan Camargo for the 2021 season were, well, pretty muted, given that it was clear that he was going to struggle to get plate appearances. Austin Riley, even with his struggles before the 2021 season, seemed like a better option than him at third base, while Dansby Swanson, Ozzie Albies, and Freddie Freeman were entrenched at their positions in the infield.

What a season it was for the Atlanta Braves’ right-handed pitching prospect, Darius Vines. Vines — a 2019 seventh rounder in the MLB draft who played his college baseball at Cal State Bakersfield — began the season touching the radar but is now a full-fledged prospect to watch for the 2022 season. Let’s look back at the year that was.

There were lots of reasons for the Braves to acquire Orlando Arcia — infield depth, clearing space on the 40-man roster, his own improvements to his hitting potential as he showed in 2020, etc. In the end, though, he didn’t get much of an opportunity in the majors, and mostly squandered the chances he received. Acquisition Signed as an international free agent out of Venezuela in 2010, Arcia’s top prospect status never really translated to the majors.

Soler hit three World Series home runs. Each took your breath. Each gave the Braves a lead they wouldn’t lose.

Tomlin re-entered free agency at the end of that season and elected to return to Atlanta on a minor league deal. He made the 2020 Opening Day roster and filled in across a variety of roles as the Braves tried to piece together their rotation. He ended up appearing in 17 games and made five starts while posting a 4.76 ERA and a 4.02 FIP in 39 2/3 innings (0.4 fWAR).

Before the 2021 season, ZiPS had Soler projected as a designated hitter that would post a . line with 30 homers on his way to a 2.4 fWAR season. Soler was coming off a disappointing 2020 in which he underhit his xwOBA a fair bit en route to a 108 wRC+ and 0.6 fWAR, which came on the heels of a 3.6 fWAR season in 2019 (136 wRC+, 48 homers).

Acquiring Joc Pederson was the first in a series of July moves made by Alex Anthopoulos that turned around the Atlanta Braves season. Pederson produced some big moments for the Braves but his value went beyond his numbers, as his presence in the clubhouse was apparently crucial down the stretch and throughout the postseason. How acquired Pederson was originally an 11th-round pick of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2010 MLB Draft.
