National League East

Standard

* – indicates new to team

+ – indicates injury

1. Philadelphia Phillies

Not only did they sign Bryce Harper, but they also traded for one of the best catchers in J.T. Realmuto.

2. Washington Nationals

A new ‘face of the franchise’ will emerge with the departure of Harper. Technically Max Scherzer has been doing that since his arrival.

3. Atlanta Braves

This doesn’t mean they won’t be competitive. They will be in the middle of a crazy race in the NL East.

4. New York Mets

With stability in the bullpen, maybe Jacob deGrom will get at least 15 wins this year.

5. Miami Marlins

Time to see what prospects will begin to emerge in the middle of a long and deliberate rebuilding process.

Player to Watch: OF Bryce Harper – Philadelphia Phillies
