I just wanted to put up a fresh post and give us a new thread.
How might playing time shake out if the Braves don’t add anyone else? Well, let’s take a look at last year. These were the top PA earners last year:
I’m omitting catchers since catchers should only get those plate appearances. Otherwise, that’s 5,003 plate appearances. Using that same amount, and adding in Josh Donaldson, this is how it looks now:
|Ronald Acuna Jr.||650|
That adds up to 5,000. What you’re seeing there is that you’re giving the guys who almost cleared 700 PAs last year a few extra days off, cutting Markakis and Dansby back quite a bit, Culberson back a little bit, and still having a spot for Donaldson and Camargo to play full-time. You’re also giving Flaherty and Tucker’s PAs to Donaldson. On paper, this team is significantly better if playing time is allotted this way and we don’t fall into injury situations.
