I love this time of year. Spring season is over and the games are about to begin. Each team has to get down to 25 players. The season-opening roster for 2014 Atlanta Braves includes 12 pitchers, three catchers, six infielders and four outfielders for opening day on March 31, 2014.
12 Pitchers: Luis Avilan (LH), Ryan Buchter (LH), David Carpenter (RH), David Hale (RH), Aaron Harang (RH), Craig Kimbrel (RH), Gus Schlosser (RH), Julio Teheran (RH), Ian Thomas (LH), Anthony Varvaro (RH), and Jordan Walden (RH) and Alex Wood (RH).
3 Catchers: Ryan Doumit, Evan Gattis and Gerald Laird

6 Infielders: Freddie Freeman, Chris Johnson, Tyler Pastornicky, Ramiro Pena, Andrelton Simmons and Dan Uggla
4 Outfielders: Jason Heyward, Jordan Schafer, B.J. Upton and Justin Upton
And so, the Atlanta Braves open in 2014 with the Milwaukee Brewers on the road. They lost 2-0 and are now 0-1 for the season.
