Due to late-season roster expansion, the Atlanta Braves called up six players to assist them in their push to the playoffs.
Some were called up before rosters expanded, some were called up because of it, and some were called up in spite of it, but regardless of the circumstance, roster expansion enabled the call-ups to occur.
September call-ups are always exciting; they enable fans to get a glimpse of the young guns with the best shot of breaking camp with the team next year. This year, Dylan Bundy of the Baltimore Orioles is probably the most intriguing September call-up; he epitomizes the spirit of the traditional call-up as an elite young talent.
Atlanta may not have a Dylan Bundy to write home about, but at least a third of their six call-ups have serious long-term potential with the Braves. Not only that, but there is a strong possibility that at least half of the call-ups will make the Braves postseason roster.
The purpose of this slideshow though, is to discuss the 2013 plans for the September call-ups: the most likely scenarios these call-ups see next year. So without further adieu...
