The Atlanta Braves were probably the most active team in the National League East so far during the offseason. They head into Spring Training having made a few roster moves to bolster their lineup in order to compete with the Washington Nationals and Philadelphia Phillies on the road to a potential birth in the playoffs. The Atlanta Braves will be a force to be reckoned with in the National League this coming 2013 season, having finished the 2012 campaign with a 94-68 record and being one of the two NL Wild Card teams.
