7 players that played for the Braves in 2023 that you probably forgot about

The Braves certainly aren't afraid to throw players out there to see who works and who doesn't.

Eli White

Do you remember how Eli White took Braves spring training by storm and everyone was wondering how much playing time he was going to get in the outfield in 2023? It is funny to laugh about now, but it was a real thing as White showed out early on. Predictably, it did not last.

White ended up playing six games with the Braves this season and his slash line of .071/.235/.071 left a lot to be desired. Once Eddie Rosario and Kevin Pillar were fully settled in on the big league roster, the whole Braves outfield discussion became moot. White has been hurt off and on since June and Forrest Wall ended up getting an opportunity in the big leagues in White's absence (Wall has been better regardless).

Charlie Culberson

We hope that all of you find something to love as much as the Braves seem to love finding ways to keep Charlie Culberson around. The Braves have signed Charlie back on minor league deals multiple times this season alone as the veteran utilityman has often been the easiest guy to move off the 40 man for other roster moves.

Despite all the moves to keep him around in one way or another, Culberson has just a single plate appearance with the Braves this season and yes, he got a hit. Culberson almost wasn't eligible for this list because there is a small but very vocal population of fans that think Charlie should be the Braves' starting shortstop and will let anyone with ears know it so he is far from forgotten. However, he still makes the cut.

Luke Williams

The only current Brave on this list is Luke Williams and that is because, well, Williams barely plays at all and when it does, it is surprising. With Ehire Adriaza out, Williams has been the Braves' final bench guy since the middle of August. He doesn't bring much to the table offensively, but he can basically play any position in the field other than catcher which is nice.

However, the Braves typically don't give position players much in the way of rest and with Nicky Lopez and Forrest Wall around, they have gotten the scant opportunities that have been available as Williams has appeared in just three games with two total plate appearances. He has scored a run at the very least!
