A lot has gone right for the 2013 edition of the Atlanta Braves, but they have also been quite the unlucky ballclub when it comes to a few of their key players.
Atlanta's pair of left-handed relievers, Jonny Venters and Eric O'Flaherty, are both on the disabled list because of Tommy John surgery.
The dominant duo will not be back this season, and the Braves are going to have to rely on young relievers like Luis Avilan and Cory Gearrin to set up for closer Craig Kimbrel.
One other unlucky aspect of the Braves' season has been the play of offseason acquisition B.J. Upton.
Upton was expected to be a productive leadoff man to a powerful batting order, but instead his spot in the lineup has fluctuated all season as he is hitting a meager .143.
