Spring training for the Atlanta Braves is finally upon us as Braves pitchers and catchers are set to report this week. We are already starting to hear about players arriving to camp early with pitchers and catchers set to officially arrive on February 15th and the entire squad required to report by February 20th. Fear not, Braves fans, because baseball season is right around the corner.

This is going to be a pretty interesting camp for the Braves. While the vast majority of the Braves' roster spots are entirely settled entering the 2024 season barring injuries (stay healthy, fellas), the Braves still have at least one unsettled spot in their rotation, a couple spots in the bullpen to firm up, and the bench needs to be filled out. Plus, the Braves have a number of new additions in Jarred Kelenic, Chris Sale, Reynaldo Lopez, Aaron Bummer, and others that fans will want to see in action.

Spring training isn't only interesting because of the implications for the big league roster. The Braves have invited a number of their prospects to camp along with an suite of minor league signings as non-roster invitees that could make an impact at some this season if not right out of spring training. How well those guys perform this spring and how long they are kept around in camp is going to tell us a lot about Atlanta's options and plans in 2024.

It is a given that we are going to see wave after wave of roster cuts this spring especially once games get started. Most of these moves will be expected as minor leaguers are shuffled back to minor league camp as the everyday guys start playing more and more over the course of the spring. There will also guys that are on minor league deals battling for a major league roster spot that simply won't make the cut and will be let go pretty early in the process to give them a chance to catch on with another team before the start of the 2024 season.

Below, you will find all of roster cuts the Braves have made this spring. This page will be updated as spring training goes on, so make sure that you have this page bookmarked and check in from time to time as the Braves' 2024 roster takes shape.

February 29th - Braves send Hayden Harris and Taylor Widener back to minor league camp

A couple of minor moves, nothing really to see here as neither Harris nor Widener had a shot at the big league roster.

March 4th - Braves make second wave of cuts including multiple key arms

Now we are talking. This set of spring training cuts provided a lot of useful information. Daysbel Hernandez got sent to minor league camp, likely because he has minor league options, which seemed to pave the way for Ken Giles to get a real shot in the bullpen. Dylan Dodd, Darius Vines, and Allan Winans also got trimmed which reinforced the idea that it will be one or both of Reynaldo Lopez or Bryce Elder getting the early season rotation innings.
