The Braves have a lot of questions in the starting rotation with so many injuries. Do not be shocked if Northcraft is recalled sometime in August to help in case of another injury.

Luis Avilan has already had some time with the Braves this season. Now residing at Triple-A, the 25-year-old reliever could come back to help out the Braves' bullpen down the line.

Taylor Pastornicky is a bit roadblocked in the infield. If Tommy La Stella starts to struggle toward the end of the month and into August, Pastornicky will be back with the Braves in a heartbeat.

Much like Northcraft, J.R. Graham could see time with the Braves in case of an injury. Graham still does have a high ERA in Double-A Mississippi, which means he may make the team toward the end of August instead of the beginning.

Atlanta may give Christian Bethancourt some more time if Evan Gattis struggles. Atlanta does have a competition at the catching position, which could be answered by the Braves' top-hitting prospect in Bethancourt.
