The Atlanta Braves finalized their 2017 Opening Day roster Sunday in advance of Monday's season opener against the New York Mets. Atlanta's Opening Day starter RHP Julio Teheran (2008,2009) and C Tyler Flowers (2006) represent the advanced-rookie affiliate on the Braves 2017 Opening Day roster, while RP Mauricio Cabrera (2012) was in contention for a bullpen spot until right elbow pain landed him on the 10-day disabled list to start the season.

In addition to Teheran and Flowers, 21 other former Danville Braves players are on MLB Opening Day rosters, scattered across 16 big league teams.
