Pairing Justin and B.J. Upton together in the Atlanta Braves outfield represents a unique situation for baseball siblings and the future of the Atlanta franchise. Not only will the Upton brothers be expected to replace the production and professionalism of Michael Bourn and Martin Prado, but they'll also be expected to make their teammates better while pushing each other to new heights.

The five-year, $75 million deal signed by B.J. early in the offseason gave Atlanta a power-hitting, defensive stalwart in CF. The seven-player trade for Justin in late January gave Atlanta a 25-year-old former MVP candidate. When combined with Jason Heyward, the Braves could field one of the best outfields in a generation.

As a team, Atlanta is looking to take the next step from playoff contender to champion. The Uptons can lead, but they'll need help.

Here are five Atlanta Braves who will benefit most from the Upton brothers' addition to the team.
