Pros: Freeman has led the Braves offense all season and been the only consistent run-producer in 2014.
Freeman leads the team with a .308 average, 23 RBI and .382 OBP.
He ranks in the top five among NL first basemen (among qualifiers) in home runs (7), RBI (23), average (.308), OBP (.382), OPS (.902) and walk-to-strikeout ratio (0.64).
Cons: Freeman went through two different 0-for-12 slumps in which the Braves were just 2-4 in those games.
Pros: Johnson ranks third on the team with a .270 average and fourth with a .294 OBP.
Entering Tuesday's game, he had recorded 12 hits in his last 31 at-bats to raise his average 36 points.
Cons: His power numbers have been nonexistent.
He has just one home run, seven RBI and a below-average .629 OPS.
The OPS is third-worst in the NL among qualifiers at third base. His 0.12 walk-to-strikeout ratio is worst among qualifying third basemen.
Pros: Pastornicky hasn't recorded enough at-bats (20) to be thoroughly graded. He has a good walk percentage (10 percent) in those minimal at-bats.
Pastornicky hasn't made an error in the field and hasn't cost the Braves in any game.
Cons: Only three hits on the season for a .150 average, which ranks second to last among the positional players.
He has had little impact despite second base being an open position.
Pros: He has as many home runs (2) as Dan Uggla.
His .642 OPS is higher than Jason Heyward, Chris Johnson and B.J. Upton.
He has not committed an error in 20 games.
Cons: Despite the power, he has not been consistent at the plate, as evidenced by his .190 average.
He has not seized the position with an opportunity to replace the struggling Dan Uggla.
Pros: Simmons ranks fourth on the team with a .260 average and .693 OPS.
He has provided some pop at the plate with three triples, three home runs and nine RBI.
His 0.50 walk-to-strikeout ratio is fifth among qualifying NL shortstops.
Simmons is still the best defensive shortstop in the game.
Cons: Simmons is still too much of a free-swinger with only five walks on the season.
His OBP (.284) puts him in the middle of the pack on the team despite one of the higher averages.
Pros: He started the season hitting for much better contact than previous seasons.
He provided arguably the most dramatic hit of the season with a go-ahead grand slam in the ninth inning against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Cons: He has simply not been able to sustain any consistency on offense and now has lost his power.
His .184 average, .248 OBP and .520 OPS are all well below average.
He has shown little pop this season with just two home runs and three doubles, and it looks like he has lost his starting position for good.
His career in Atlanta could be over very soon.
