This continues our series of the Braves’ long-term outlook at each position. If you missed any of the previous parts of this series, click the links below.
When doing this series, you realize just how good the Braves have it for a long time. Third base is another position that the Braves don’t have to worry about for an extensive period. After a slow start to his MLB career, Riley broke out and nearly won an MVP award in his first full season. There’s possible regression in line, but for the most part, the adjustments he made at the plate are here to say. Riley will be the third baseman in Atlanta until his contract runs out after the 2025 season, and hopefully, long after that. I believe he has an MVP in his future if not multiple.
