2023 World Series Winner Prediction

Updated: Jan 26

Why it was always the Braves...

As the 2023 baseball season approaches, fans of the Atlanta Braves are excited about their chances of not only making it to the World Series but winning it all. The Braves have a strong team with plenty of talent, and the addition of Ronald Acuna Jr. makes them even more formidable. Let's take a closer look at what makes the Braves a top contender in 2023.

Acuna is one of the most exciting young players in baseball, and his return from injury is a huge boost for the Braves. In his last full season in 2019, Acuna hit .280 with 41 home runs and 37 stolen bases. He is a dynamic player who can change the game with his bat, speed, and defense. His presence in the lineup will make it harder for opposing pitchers to navigate the Braves' order, and his energy and leadership will inspire his teammates.

The Braves also have a number of talented young players who could play key roles in 2023. Michael Harris, the Braves' Minor League Player of the Year in 2021, is one such player. Harris hit .311 with 16 home runs and 21 stolen bases across two levels of the minors, and he is considered one of the top prospects in the Braves' system. With his versatility and athleticism, Harris could be a key contributor in the outfield or at second base.

Pitching is always a critical factor in postseason success, and the Braves have a number of arms who could lead them to a championship in 2023. Spencer Strider, a top pitching prospect, had an impressive showing in the Arizona Fall League in 2021. He struck out 23 batters in 16 innings while allowing just two runs. If he can carry that success into the regular season, he could provide a boost to the Braves' rotation or bullpen.

Kyle Wright, another talented pitcher, is scheduled to return from injury in just two weeks. Wright struggled in his limited action in 2021, but he has shown flashes of potential in the past. If he can regain his form, he could be a valuable addition to the Braves' staff.

The Braves also made a significant addition to their bullpen by signing Raisel Iglesias, an electric closer who had 32 saves for the Los Angeles Angels in 2021. Iglesias has a career 2.89 ERA and has struck out 483 batters in 424 innings. His ability to shut down opponents in the late innings could be the difference-maker in close games.

Beyond these specific players, the Braves have a deep and talented roster that gives them a great chance of making it to the World Series. Ozzie Albies is a dynamic second baseman who provides power and speed. And the Braves have a number of other players who could break out in 2023, such as the addition of Oakland A’s Catcher Sean Murphy and the familiar Braves, Matt Olson and Austin Riley. there are always factors that could derail a team's championship hopes, such as injuries, slumps, or unexpected challenges. But the Braves have all the pieces in place to make a deep postseason run in 2023. With Acuna leading the way, young players like Harris stepping up, and talented pitchers like Strider, Wright, and Iglesias anchoring the staff, the Braves have a great chance of bringing a championship back to Atlanta.
