Even as defending champ, Braves still underdogs in NL East

ATLANTA (AP) Freddie Freeman believes the Phillies, Nationals and Mets made so many moves this offseason because they wanted to catch up to the 2018 NL East champion Braves.

If hype matters, those division rivals already passed the Braves. For Atlanta, repeating as division champion may be even more difficult than their surprise title last season.

Atlanta faces new challenges from the division's impressive wave of new talent, led by the Phillies' Bryce Harper, the Nationals' Patrick Corbin and the Mets' Edwin Diaz and Robinson Cano. Many preseason projections list the Braves as underdogs in the division.
