The Atlanta Braves announced their September call-ups on Tuesday afternoon and 30-year-old third baseman Hector Olivera was the obvious headliner.
As the roster expands to close out the season, the franchise promoted Olivera, shortstop Daniel Castro, relievers Daniel Burawa and Brandon Cunniff and reinstated starting pitching Manny Banuelos from the 15-day disabled list.
Olivera, who was recently acquired in a three-team blockbuster trade with the Marlins and Dodgers, is expected to make his MLB debut during the Braves' series with the Marlins. The Cuban prospect bounced around two minor-league systems due to injuries and trades this season, and in his recent stint with Triple-A Gwinnett he hit .231/.286/.308 with five runs scored.
He is expected to handle the lion's share of third-base duties for Atlanta in September.
Banuelos, who was sidelined with elbow inflammation in late July, will immediately start against the Marlins on Tuesday night. The 24-year-old rookie has posted a 2.49 ERA in five appearances in 2015.
