The Braves have finalized their injury-depleted starting rotation and have named David Hale their fourth starter, Carroll Rogers of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports. One through five, their rotation will be:

Teheran will start on Opening Day, March 31, in Milwaukee against Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo. Newcomer Ervin Santana is expected to make his Braves debut in the second week of the season.

The Braves currently have three starting pitchers on the disabled list. Mike Minor went on the disabled list retroactive to March 21 with a shoulder injury and is expected to return towards the end of April. Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy will both miss the entire 2014 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery.

Despite the injuries, the Braves are still expected to give the Nationals a run for their money in the NL East.

      Well their Braves offence will back them up, Pitchers in the Bullpen are still average or may be above average that will still make them contenders in the NL East.

    Braves are going nowhere after their disastrous Spring Training.

      What does Spring Training have to do with this? ST is just a practice game with other teams in the MLB it’s just mostly about warming up for the upcoming regular season.

    When this guy gets lit up in the first week, they’ll be begging Freddy Garcia to come back. Karma is a bitch

      11 2/3 scoreless innings out of Harang and Hale so far…

    This rotation worries me….still keeping the faith though. Go Braves.

    Well, when the Phillies had 4 studs in their rotation you see where that got them. To be successful you need a #1 and #2 that can match the other teams aces and a 3-5 who can compete.
