2. Jorge Soler

After Soler parted ways with the Marlins early on this offseason, the path is now open for a reunion. Soler was one of the few bright spots in the Marlins lineup and clearly would be a solid option in left field for the Braves. With Rosario likely leaving, the Braves need to add at least two outfielders this offseason and there are few better fits than the World Series hero.

Who wants to face a lineup that is so talented Soler anchors the bottom portion? He adds yet another power threat to this stacked lineup and wouldn't face the pressure he dealt with in Miami. Atlanta is the best fit for Soler and allows the slugger to come into a low-pressure environment with the best protection any lineup can offer.

Perhaps Atlanta won't be in a hurry to re-visit the past, but considering the current market Soler is the best fit from a production and price standpoint. It doesn't hurt either side that Soler was the deciding factor in the World Series two seasons ago. Perhaps a reunion would yield the same results.
