Atlanta Braves All-Time Roster

Updated 03/15/2020

This is the Atlanta Braves all-time roster. Players are eligible based on seasons after 1901. The roster consists of one starter and one bench player for each infield position and one starter and one bench player for each outfield position. Hitters had to have a minimum of 1,500 plate appearances. For pitching, I selected five starting pitchers and three relief pitchers. Starting pitchers had to start at least 75 games during their time with the franchise to qualify. Relief pitchers had to accumulate a minimum of 150 innings pitched to be eligible.

  1. The Braves are one of the oldest and in my top 5 greatest starting pitching staffs ever and perhaps the greatest number of 3B. Their biggest weakness is at catcher and at 1B where most other teams are very strong.

    C Joe Torre, Javier Lopez

    1B Freddie Freeman, Fred Tenney
    2B Bobby Lowe
    3B Eddie Mathews, Chipper Jones, Jimmy Collins, Bob Elliott, Darrell Evans
    SS Rabbit Marranville, Herman Long

    LF Hugh Duffy, Ralph Garr
    CF Wally Berger, Dale Murphy, Andrew Jones, Sliding Billy Hamilton
    RF Hank Aaron, Tommy Holmes

    SPR Kid Nichols, Greg Maddux, Phil Niekro, Vic Willis, Lew Burdette, Johnny Sain, Dick Rudolph, John Clarkson
    SPL Warren Spahn, Tom Glavine,

    RPR John Smoltz, Greg Kimbrel, Mark Wohlers, Gene Garber
