UTL/RHP Charlie Culberson

A familiar face talked about often this offseason, Culberson was brought back by the Braves back on January 12 on a minor league deal, as well as shortly after assigned to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Known to Braves' fans as "Charlie Clutch," Culberson is an 11-year MLB veteran who has endeared himself to this fanbase. From 2018-20, Culberson slashed a combined .267/.315/.456 with 17 HR, 66 RBI, and four SB across 230 games, while also seeing time at numerous positions defensively.

However, he now enters Spring Training with the Braves as a pitcher, which he has done a few times during his MLB career. In fact, the veteran has 7.1 IP during his major league career, which has translated to a 1.23 ERA and 1:3 K:BB ratio across eight appearances, each of which came as a relief pitcher.

So, not only is Culberson a must-watch player in Spring Training because he is a clear fan favorite, but also because of the position-change. How will "Charlie Clutch" look as a pitcher this spring?
