ATLANTA (AP) – The world series champion Atlanta Braves has taken three catchers on his opening day list.

William Kontrassas secured the team for Thursday’s first game against Cincinnati Red after starting Trevisa d’Arno and main doubler Menia Pinjas. Earlier this week, the Braves sent veteran strikers Phil Goselin and Pat Valaika to Triple-A Gwinnett.

The 24-year-old Counter-Race, who reached 0.215 in eight games in the Braves last season with eight home runs and 23 assists, played the right field in spring training to increase his versatility. He also picked up ground bombs at the third base if needed.

The brave have only one spare striker in Orlando Arcia.

Contreras is likely to return to Triple-A when Ronald Akunja junior rejoins the team in early May. The star striker starts the injured list this year as he recovers from reconstructive knee surgery.

The Braves have 15 throwers in their expanded lineup of 28 people and are likely to use six starters in the first month of the season. After the first three, Max Fried, Charlie Morton and Ian Anderson, Huascar Inoa and Kail Wright competed for the next two places.

Left-handed Takers Davidson and heavy-duty right-hand Spencer Striders will be ranked sixth in the game.

Strider is one of the team’s most intriguing prospects. He started Last-A last season, but progressed quickly in the minors to earn a call from Braves in October.
