Just in: Atlanta are traded away players and will be missed the most….

Which player traded away this offseason will Atlanta miss the most.

The Braves have sent fifteen players to new destinations this offseason – who will be missed the most?

The Atlanta Braves have been busy this offseason.

President of baseball operations Alex Anthopoulos has made eight trades this offseason, shipping out fifteen players to new destinations.

Those trades have been productive, however, with Atlanta’s net coming back including five years of left fielder Jarred Kelenic, two years of Chris Sale (after the extension), one year (or three years, with club options) of Aaron Bummer, and six years of reliever Ray Kerr.

But of the players that Atlanta lost, who could they conceivably miss the most? Let’s break it down, from least to most:

Atlanta moved several minor leaguers in those deals, including starting pitcher Cole Phillips (Mariners), relievers Tyler Thomas (Angels) and Riley Gowens (White Sox), and outfielder Drew Campbell (Padres).

Phillips, due to injury, never have a chance to throw a pitch in the minors, while none of the other prospects seemingly had paths to playing time in Atlanta. It’s pretty safe to say the Braves came out on the winning end of those deals, as of now.
