As expected, the Atlanta Braves have called up several players including third baseman Hector Olivera as part of their September roster expansion.

In addition to Olivera, the Braves also called up infielder Daniel Castro along with pitchers Daniel Burawa and Brandon Cunniff. The team also activated pitcher Manny Banuelos from the disabled list and he will start tonight's game against the Marlins.

Olivera is expected to get the majority of playing time at third base for the remainder of the season. Since being acquired from the Dodgers at the trade deadline, Olivera has been playing in the minors and trying to recover from a hamstring injury that he suffered earlier this summer.
