PHILADELPHIA: 2017 66-96, fifth place
MANAGER Gabe Kapler (first season)
ADDITIONS: RHP Jake Arrieta, 1B Carlos Santana, RHP Pat Neshek, RHP Tommy Hunter
SUBTRACTIONS: Manager Pete Mackanin, SS Freddy Galvis, INF Andres Blanco, OF Daniel Nava, OF Hyun Soo Kim, RHP Clay Buchholz, 1B Tommy Joseph
OUTLOOK: The decision to sign Arrieta signals the rebuild is over. The Phillies added Santana, Neshek and Hunter to a talented young roster in hopes of being competitive. A month into spring training, they added Arrieta because management thinks it's time to contend. The lineup has the potential to be dynamic if the young hitters continue to emerge and Santana does what he did in Cleveland. The bullpen should be formidable with Hunter-Neshek-Neris at the back end. If Arrieta regains his old form, Nola lives up to his promise and a couple of other starters take steps forward, the Phillies cannot only end their five-year run of losing seasons but maybe even make a surprise push for a postseason berth.
ATLANTA: 2017 72-90, third place
MANAGER Brian Snitker (third season)
ADDITIONS: RHP Brandon McCarthy, RHP Anibal Sanchez, LHP Scott Kazmir, INF Charlie Culberson, OF Preston Tucker, OF Ronald Acuna, 3B Austin Riley, OF Jeff Decker, 2B Christian Colon, RHP Shane Carle
SUBTRACTIONS: OF Matt Kemp, RHP R.A. Dickey, 3B Adonis Garcia, 1B Matt Adams, INF Jace Peterson, RHP Jason Motte
OUTLOOK: Teheran, Foltynewicz and Newcomb have provided reasons this spring to believe they can improve their 2017 numbers. For a change, the spring spotlight was on a position player; Acuna was hitting .432 with 4 home runs, 11 RBI and 4 steals when he was sent to minor league camp. The move involving the 20-year-old top prospect was expected. It was made to maintain an extra full season of contractual control down the road, but Acuna likely will be recalled in April and immediately start in left field. He could provide a needed power bat to help Freeman in the middle of the lineup. The Braves likely are still at least a year away from contending in the NL East, but improved starting pitching could push them closer to .500 this year.
Braves, Freeman ready for a fight from Phillies

ATLANTA -- The Phillies get the Braves in Philadelphia for three games to end the regular season, but it may not matter after the teams' four-game series at SunTrust Park starting Thursday night.

The Braves' magic number to win the National League East is down to six and that means they can clinch before the Phillies leave Atlanta on Sunday.

The Braves (84-68) snapped a four-game losing streak by beating St. Louis 7-3 on Wednesday to remain 5 1/2 games ahead of Philadelphia (78-73).

The Phillies are 6-11 in September, but won their second straight series Wednesday by beating the New York Mets 4-0.

The Braves are only 10-8 this month despite a recent six-game winning streak, but first baseman Freddie Freeman appears to be out of his funk.

Freeman had a second straight three-hit game against the Cardinals and blasted his 23rd homer while driving in three runs.

Freeman was an NL MVP candidate before he hit .195 with one homer and a .584 OPS over a 22-game stretch from Aug. 16-Sept. 7. Now it looks like he could be a difference-maker again.

The All-Star goes into the Philadelphia series batting .405 with two home runs and nine RBIs over his past 11 games.

"I've been feeling better lately and hopefully I can continue that," Freeman said.

The Braves have had Vince Velasquez's number and he will start the series opener for the Phillies, with Atlanta calling on fellow right-hander Kevin Gausman.

Velasquez (9-11, 4.50 ERA) is 0-4 with a 7.41 ERA in four starts against the Braves this season and 0-5 with a 4.60 ERA in eight career outings.

Velasquez also lasted only two innings in his most recent start Saturday against Miami and is 1-3 with a 7.52 ERA in his last seven outings.

Gausman (10-10, 3.92 ERA) was acquired by the Braves from Baltimore at the end of July and is 5-2 with a 2.61 ERA in eight starts with his new team.

Gausman's only career outing against Philadelphia came July 12 while with the Orioles and he took a loss, allowing five runs and 12 hits in five innings.

The Braves have won seven of the 12 games against the Phillies this season, going 4-2 at home and 3-3 on the road.

Nine of the games came in April and the other three in May, meaning that this series in Atlanta and the one to end the regular season in Philadelphia have been pointed to for months.

"We have a chance to control our own destiny," Phillies left fielder Rhys Hoskins said after hitting his 32nd homer in the series finale against the Mets. "Win games and we've got a chance to be in the playoffs."

The Phillies may have fallen a little too far off the Braves' pace, though.

"I think what we need ... to buy into is what we can control is our work right now," Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said. "That is going to give us our best chance to stay in this as long as possible. ... But I don't think it makes a whole lot of sense to look too far out."

Philadelphia juggled its rotation a while ago to make sure that Cy Young Award candidate Aaron Nola was available to pitch this weekend and next. Former Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta is also set to go for the Phillies.

"It's going to be a big series, a fun series," Braves manager Brian Snitker said. "We're getting all their top guys and we're running our top guys at them."
