With Kenley Jansen set to test free agency and Tyler Matzek out for all of next season, the Braves will have to add to their bullpen in free agency. Thankfully, there are a boatload of high quality arms available. With all the money the Braves have to spend this offseason, they should have no problem revamping the unit and ensuring it is once again one of the top bullpens in the league.
