Braves | One spot open in bullpen

Atlanta Braves RPs Cristhian Martinez, Anthony Varvaro, David Carpenter and Wirfin Obispo are all competing for the last open spot in the bullpen. Two spots might be available if RP Jordan Walden (back) isn't ready for the start of the year. The team has backed off RP Jonny Venters for a week, and manager Fredi Gonzalez was vague when asked about the situation. However, Venters is expected to start the year in the bullpen. Varvaro and Martinez are out of minor league options, which makes them the favorites for a spot.
