1) Forrest Wall won't make the Braves roster after looking like the frontrunner

Forrest Wall was not only looking like the best hitter on the Braves this spring, but one of the best hitters in all of baseball. The 28-year-old has nine hits in 24 at-bats with three home runs and 10 RBI this spring, putting up a 1.233 OPS thus far.

He was outperforming all of the other outfielders he was in competition with, and was already on the 40-man roster giving him a clear advantage over guys like Luplow and White. Unfortunately, the Duvall signing puts a big dent in Wall's chances of actually making the team.

Wall has appeared in just 15 MLB games, all coming last season for the Braves, but could've provided value off the bench as a runner. If Spring Training told us anything, he could've also provided value as a hitter.

While Duvall coming aboard means he has almost no chance of making the Opening Day roster, Wall might be the first man up if an injury were to occur. He's the player most impacted by this signing, unfortunately.
