The Atlanta Braves right now are the World Series Champions and they are also steaming ahead in the power rankings as well. Right now it is expected that there are going to be some more moves to happen before December and this is when the bargaining agreement comes to an end. There are plenty of teams right now who are slashing their payroll and others are much more focused on contending. That being said, the movement this offseason is expected to be huge.
The Pirates are two years away from being a serious contender in the league and now they have to decide what they are going to be doing with Bryan Reynolds. The All-Star outfielder is likely at his peak value right now and if he were to be traded with Colin Moran then this may be what the team needs to fully rebuild. If you’re at all interested in baseball betting in Indiana, you should know that the Indianapolis Indians are in fact a minor league of the Triple A East and an affiliate of the Pirates, so they are a team to be watched to say the least.
The Texas Rangers spent the last year or so cleaning the house and now they are starting the rebuild process. Josh Jung is going to be making his debut and he is also going to be with A.J. Alexy. He displayed a lot of late promise in the last year or so and it’s safe to say that a lot of people are excited about him. Texas could well surprise everyone by spending their money on young talent in the free-agent market.
Nolan Arenado and even Trevor Story are all gone now. So is Jon Gray. This leaves Ryan McMahon as well as Brendan Rodgers. You have Antonio Senzatela as well. These really are the only intriguing players who are on the Rockies roster. The Rockies look to be keeping Bill Schmidt on as the general manager and there are reasons for many to be concerned about the future. That being said, now would be the best time for them to be pulling out a few stops and it is safe to say that they could turn things around quickly if they end up making the right choices.
The Baltimore Orioles should really be caring about their top prospect, who is Adley Rutschman. He should be ready for the show in April 2022 and he may be putting in a line-up with Trey Mancini. You also have Cedric Mullins. Austin Hays is also a reason to have hope when you look at Baltimore as well. The Baltimore team could be able to pull something out of the bag if they put in the work but at the end of the day, only time will tell if they have what it takes to go the distance. There’s a lot of tension in the baseball world but things could be about to change.
