With just two days left in May, it is safe to say that the Braves have had an interesting month. The Braves have gone just 14-12 in May, but they remain four-and-a-half games ahead of the second-placed Nationals. Everything sounds great right there, but there have been some problems too.

This article will grade the performance each of the 25 guys who spent the majority of May with the Braves.
