The 2022 MLB season has come to a conclusion, meaning front offices around the league are now going to start shifting attention to offseason free agents. 131 players were officially declared as free agents on Sunday, including nine Atlanta Braves pros that made a noteworthy impact this past year.

Atlanta Braves Free Agency

The name most Braves fans are going to notice right away is Dansby Swanson. The 28-year-old emerged as one of the NL's best shortstops in 2022, earning his first All-Star bid and winning his first Gold Glove. He slashed .277/.329/.447 with 99 runs scored, 25 home runs and 96 RBI in 162 games.

Outfielders Adam Duvall and Robbie Grossman are the other Atlanta sluggers set to hit the open market. Duvall has smacked 54 home runs across five seasons for the Braves. Meanwhile, Grossman posted a .306 on-base percentage in 46 games after being acquired at the 2022 trade deadline.

Two veteran bullpen arms are no longer under contract, either. Kenley Jansen enters free agency after racking up an NL-best 41 saves across 65 appearances in 2022 (3.38 ERA). Jesse Chavez may be searching for a new home after logging a 2.72 ERA in 46 games prior to his trade to LA in August.

The Braves have built a reputation for being able to bring back players for less than their expected market value, so keep an eye on the front office's decisions in the coming months. The other four free agents are utility player Ehire Adrianza and relievers Luke Jackson, Darren O'Day and Jay Jackson.

For now, Atlanta has odds set at +800 to win the 2023 World Series, per FanDuel Sportsbook.
