Duvall didn't do badly in CF; as several commentators have pointed out, he

is rather athletic. Just ask Gavin Lux.(See link.)

Pache wasn't ready this season. Why not keep a guy who had 38 HRs & 113 RBIs (1st in the NL)? (Duvall actually hit a 39th regular season vs. the D'backs; it was scored a single when Duvall passed Riley, who was retreating to 1st. Long story.)

Some commentators expect the NL to adopt theDH rule this coming off-season and, as Soler showed in Games 1 and 5 in Houston, he would be great in that role. (Soler is also underrated as a right fielder. He is adequate there, if not more than adequate.)

And the Braves should, of course, keep Rosario, if at all possible.

Joc was a key contributor against the Brewers and hit a tying, 2-run HR against Scherzer in Game 4 of the NLCS. However, he was only 1-15 against the Astros. If the Braves have to drop 1 of the 4 trade-deadline newcomers, I think it should be Joc.
