ATLANTA If you dont recognize all the new faces in the Braves dugout, dont worry. You have company. The Braves, like all the clubs in the majors, have been adding players to their rosters since Sept. 1, when they expanded from 25 to 40 players.Lets take a look at the recent additions, some of who are familiar faces, and some arent: Jeff Baker Position: INFOF BatsThrows: RR The Skinny: The Braves traded for Baker to fill a need for a right-handed bat off the bench. Baker is hitting .260 with four home runs and 20 RBIs for the Cubs, the Tigers and the Braves this season. He also provides versatility, having played third, second, first and right and left field in his career. Bakers best season was 2007, when he hit .268 with 12 homers and 48 RBIs for the Rockies. Miguel Batista Position: P BatsThrows: RR The Skinny: The veteran pitcher, who is listed as 41 years old, has been to more cities than Delta. The Braves are his 11th team, joining Arizona, Washington, Seattle, the New York Mets, Toronto, Kansas City, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, the Chicago Cubs and Florida. Batista, who is 102-115 in his 18th year, started five games for the Mets this season, but will be a reliever with the Braves. J.C. Boscan Position: C BatsThrows: RR The Skinny: This is the fourth trip to the majors for Boscan since 2010. At 32 years old, hes not considered a prospect, but provides insurance should either Brian McCann or David Ross need to rest or heal their aches and pains. Boscan, who hit .189 with three home runs and 23 RBIs at Gwinnett this season, has 16 major-league at-bats. Hes hitting .143 with the Braves this season after going 3-for-9 with them last year. Jose Constanza Position: OF BatsThrows: LL The Skinny: Like Boscan, Constanza isnt a prospect, but provides speed and defense off the bench. He impressed the Braves by hitting .303 with seven steals in 42 games in 2011, but hes hitting only .225 this year to go with four steals. Expect Constanza to get an occasional start in left field and enter games as a defensive replacement. Randall Delgado Position: P BatsThrows: RR The Skinny: Delgado is back, but he likely will eat up middle innings out of the bullpen this month. Delgado, who is 4-9 with a 4.42 ERA with the Braves, made eight starts at Gwinnett, going 4-3 with a 4.06 ERA. He still struggled with his control, walking 21 batters in 44 13 innings after walking 42 in 91 23 innings with the Braves. Delgado could start if needed. Cory Gearrin Position: P BatsThrows: RR The Skinny: Gearrin was effective in his two previous times with the Braves this season, allowing one earned run in 11 13 innings for a 0.79 ERA. He was with the team in June and then again for the first two weeks of August. Gearrin, who was 1-1 with the Braves in 2011, can close he had nine saves in Gwinnett this year but likely will work the middle innings this month. Peter Moylan Position: P BatsThrows: RR The Skinny: The longtime fan favorite and once rubber-armed reliever from Australia has returned to the Braves after working his way back from severe shoulder surgery last Oct. 3. Former manager Bobby Cox used Moylan extensively from 2006-2010, but hes had three major surgeries in the past five years, causing him to miss practically all of 2011 and this year. Moylan already has a win and hasnt allowed a run in two innings this month. Lyle Overbay Position: 1B BatsThrows: LL The Skinny: Overbay is another veteran brought in to provide an experienced bat off the bench. The 12-year veteran who had his best season -- .312, 22 home runs and 92 RBIs -- with Toronto in 2006, hit .292 with two homers and 10 RBIs in limited duty with the Diamondbacks this year before Arizona let him go after acquiring Chris Johnson from Houston. He has 133 career home runs and a .271 career average. Julio Teheran Position: P BatsThrows: RR The Skinny: The organizations top prospect has pitched in only one game for the Braves this season, allowing four runs in 4 13 innings against Toronto on June 10. He struggled in Gwinnett, going 7-9 with a 5.08 ERA after posting a 15-3 record and 2.55 ERA there in 2011. He was more effective at the end of the season, giving up three earned runs in his final 14 13 innings.
