Braves and Former Braves in the 2013 World Baseball Classic

World-Baseball-Classic-2013The Braves have been quick to let us know which current Braves are playing for Team USA (Go Kimmie and Meds!) and about how Andrelton is playing on Team Great Smiles (...I mean, Netherlands). But what about everyone else (Marteen)? And what about former Braves or minor-league Braves? We care about those guys too!
