Nothing wrong with dumpster dives (or volume), would just be nice to hit on one again. Definitely still better than spending $20 million on David Robertson and Nicasio (or trading for the guys we got last years). But there's no way they won't sign at least one reliever in the $6-10 million range (depending on the term and how the market plays out). Alvarado might be the second guaranteed addition already.
As thin and awful as things were last year, there's still not that many spots to fill, though at the same time most everybody is also not immune from a DFA or option. Another Hunter type could take Hamilton or Hale's spot. Alvarez or another more experienced lefty could buy Romero more time if needed (or make Suarez a starter option). An Arano comeback or Brogdon stepping up would certainly be better than ending up with another Workman or Hembree.

Arano/Rosso/other minor leaguers
I would agree a guaranteed starting pitcher spot is less likely, unless they trade VV. But they do need to bolster the 6th starter depth with a few minor league vets if they can.
I wonder what Hamels will fetch. Braves certainly don't seem to need him, Will our new front office finally bring in a lefty starter?
