Atlanta Braves spring training roster


Braves pitchers and catchers report for spring training Tuesday in Lake Buena, Vista, Fla. They will conduct their first workout the next day. The first full-squad workout is set for Feb. 19.

Here’s a look at the full camp roster, which consists of the 40-man roster plus 21 non-roster invitees.

Nine players on the 40-man (Brandon McCarthy, Charlie Culberson, Scott Kazmir, Preston Tucker, Chase Whitley, Grant Dayton, Josh Ravin, Shane Carle and Anyelo Gomez) have joined the organization since the 2017 season ended. Two other newcomers to the 40-man (Adam McCreery and Ricardo Sanchez) were added from the Braves’ farm system.

Maybe the player Braves fans most want to see is one of the 21 NRIs: outfield prospect Ronald Acuna. 

As you observe the uniform numbers, you may notice that seven of the returning Braves will wear numbers different from the ones they wore at the end of last season. Luiz Gohara changed from 64 to 53, Sean Newcomb from 51 to 15, Max Fried from 61 to 54, Lane Adams from 16 to 18, A.J. Minter from 67 to 40, Dan Winkler from 63 to 58 and Akeel Morris from 60 to 61.
