Braves: need 4/5 SP depth Setup/Closer type and Catcher budget 15-30M -but will likely save huge splash signings for next years new stadium.
Marlins: maybe 1B Could trade Marcell Ozuna and sign an OF will likely acquire 2 SP one of them being a #2 starter the other lower end. needs lefty reliever. Budget 10-25M.
Phillies: Needs all over especially SP Needs all over offense except SS and 3B Bullpen can use beefing up 10-100M Budget don’t know what they are going for but should wait for next season to make some game changing moves new GM. Unknown philosophy could sell Odubel Herrera high.
Nationals: 7th/8th inning man maybe SP (Would only be high end) Possible CF. Budget could be -10M to upwards of 30M.
Cubs: SP 3/CF/RF/CL. if needed but not urgent Quagmire at 2B High end SP a priority Should acquire shutdown closer. 40-80M budget.
Reds: May trade Todd Frazier. Need SP (inning eaters types most likely) but can’t afford to pay big. Will shop Aroldis Chapman. Would need 3B if Frazier traded, Jay Bruce could also be shopped. Budget 15M to 20M. Will try to sell high on Brandon Phillips.
Brewers: CF SP Depth Don’t expect much. Budget 15-35M. Likely on lower side as owner said payroll likely to be cut back Could trade a MI.
