Jason Heyward earned his first Gold Glove Award in 2012.

The Atlanta Braves have assembled a young and dynamic outfield in hopes of positioning the club to contend in the National League East for years to come.

Not many teams get the opportunity to bring together a trio of former first-round draft picks, all moving toward the prime years of their respective careers, all under team control for at least three seasons and all patrolling the same outfield together.

The Braves became more athletic, while adding young players with power, speed and defense. General manager Frank Wren worked diligently to bring in the best talent available. His revamped outfield gives Atlanta a new identity just one season after franchise icon Chipper Jones retired.

While they have yet to play a single regular-season game together, brothers B.J. and Justin Upton, along with Jason Heyward, all figure prominently into the future of the team. The 2013 season could be the start of great things in Atlanta.
