2013 MLB Atlanta Braves NEWS
The return of Jason Heyward can’t be overstated, and the fact that he went 5-for-5 on Thursday shows he’s ready to make an impact atop the lineup heading into October.
B.J. Upton will likely find himself on the bench for the playoffs with Evan Gattis producing well enough to justify everyday at-bats, and Dan Uggla will split time with August acquisition Elliot Johnson at second base.
When they’re firing on all cylinders, the Atlanta Braves lineup is as good as any in baseball, but they have been streaky all season, and that is why they find themselves in the bottom half of these rankings.
