2014 Starter Projections


P – Mike Minor

P – Kris Medlen

P – Julio Teheran

P – Brandon Beachy

P – Alex Wood

Note: New Acquisition Gavin Floyd could be ready to pitch by May, and could be inserted into the rotation if someone else struggles.  Note also that there is a good chance the Atlanta Braves’ may limit Alex Wood‘s innings.  


Positional Players

C – Evan Gattis

1B – Freddie Freeman

2B – Dan Uggla

SS – Andrelton Simmons

3B – Chris Johnson

LF – Justin Upton

CF – B.J. Upton

RF – Jason Heyward

Note: There are still unanswered questions about Dan Uggla, but many of us believe he’ll get the start at 2B in 2014.  If he continues to struggle, we have depth with a returning Ramiro Pena, and Tommy La Stella could get a call-up to the bigs sooner rather than later.  Little else is likely to change.
