The Atlanta Braves need certain players to get hot if they want to get through the playoffs.
The Braves are in the process of deciding which players will be on their 25-man roster for the postseason. Even with that going on, certain players have to start getting into grooves.
Likely relegated to a wild-card spot, the Braves are looking to be this year's version of the 2011 St. Louis Cardinals. The Cardinals got hot at the end of last year and rode that wave to a World Series title.
Once the playoffs hit, struggles are going to have to be a thing of the past. Players like Dan Uggla and Brian McCann are going to have to step it up.
If they don't, Chipper Jones may retire with only one World Series ring.
Here's a look at four players who will have to get hot for the Braves to make a run in the playoffs.
