The Braves will only take 12 pitchers
Thanks to the off days, the Braves won't need four starters. They also won't need to worry about taxing the back part of the bullpen. Because of this, the team doesn't need a long reliever like Michael Tonkin in case of emergency. Kyle Wright is fully capable of eating innings, as is AJ Smith Shawver.
Spencer Strider, Max Fried, and Bryce Elder will be the team's starting pitching for the first round.
Raisel Iglesias, A.J. Minter, Pierce Johnson, and Joe Jimenez will take care of the high leverage relief innings, while Jesse Chavez, Kyle Wright, Kirby Yates, Brad Hand, and AJ Smith-Shawver will take care of the rest.
A Kyle Wright/AJ Smith-Shawver piggyback start also isn't out of the question.
Starting pitchers: Spencer Strider, Max Fried, Bryce Elder (3)
Relievers: Raisel Iglesias, A.J. Minter, Pierce Johnson, Joe Jimenez, Jesse Chavez, Kyle Wright, Kirby Yates, Brad Hand, AJ Smith-Shawver (9)
