The Braves hired Alex Anthopolous as general manager in mid-November, and he has quickly made his mark on the team’s 25-man roster.
Anthopolous notably did not make a major transaction during the offseason, except for the salary-dumping trade with the Dodgers that sent Matt Kemp to Los Angeles and brought Brandon McCarthy, Charlie Culberson, Adrian Gonzalez (designated for assignment soon after as a condition of the trade) and Scott Kazmir (released during spring training) to the Braves.
However, he made enough small moves through the end of spring training that nine of the 25 players on the active roster as of April 7 (plus Josh Ravin, who is on the disabled list) were acquired by Anthopoulos.
Check out the video above to see those 10 players and a look at their stats a little more than a week into the season.
