ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves had 16 position players on their roster for Friday's wild-card game against St. Louis and kept three starting pitchers active.
Right-hander Cristhian Martinez, who appeared in 54 games and often was effective in long relief, was not on the 25-man roster. Joining closer Craig Kimbrel in the bullpen were left-handers Luis Avilan, Eric O'Flaherty and Jonny Venters and right-handers Chad Durbin and Cory Gearrin.
The roster included eight infielders and five outfielders.
