Braves Set Wild Card Game Roster

The Atlanta Braves have announced their roster for today's Wild Card game:

PITCHERS (9): Luis Avilan (LH), Chad Durbin (RH), Cory Gearrin (RH), Tim Hudson (RH), Craig Kimbrel (RH), Kris Medlen (RH), Mike Minor (LH), Eric O'Flaherty (LH) and Jonny Venters (LH)

CATCHERS (3): J.C. Boscan, Brian McCann and David Ross

INFIELDERS (8): Jeff Baker, Freddie Freeman, Eric Hinske, Chipper Jones, Lyle Overbay, Tyler Pastornicky, Andrelton Simmons and Dan Uggla

OUTFIELDERS (5): Michael Bourn, Jose Constanza, Jason Heyward, Reed Johnson and Martin Prado

Noticeably absent from the roster is Cristhian Martinez and Juan Francisco. In a one-game playoff, a guy like Martinez probably wouldn't be needed anyway, and Francisco hasn't been playing much for the past few weeks. It looks like they're going with the veteran pinch-hitters in Overbay and Hinske.
