Where were the players acquired by the Braves drafted?

The Braves have acquired a lot of young players over the past 13 months. Here is where the players were drafted by their original teams.

We want to see where the Braves players and prospects that have been acquired in the trades the last year were drafted by their original teams.

We’ve also included the three competitive balance picks the Braves have acquired in trades, with one set for next June’s draft from the trade the Braves made with the Dodgers in July.

With Wednesday’s trade, the Braves have now traded for nine former first round picks since the rebuilding trades started last November.
