The Atlanta Braves added right-hander Chris Martin to their National League Championship Series roster ahead of Game 1 against the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday night.

Infielder Johan Camargo also was added on Saturday morning, while left-hander Dylan Lee and outfielder Terrance Gore were left off the roster for the Braves.

Martin, 35, posted a 2-4 record with one save and a 3.95 ERA in 46 relief appearances this season.

Camargo, 27, is 0-for-16 with six strikeouts in 15 games in 2021.

While the Braves featured 14 position players and 12 pitchers, the Dodgers went with a 13-13 split.

Los Angeles left-hander David Price did not pitch against the San Francisco Giants despite being listed on the NL Division Series roster. He joined outfielder Billy McKinney in being left off the Dodgers’ NLCS roster in favor of left-hander Justin Bruihl and right-hander Evan Phillips.

Bruihl, 24, is 0-1 with a 2.89 ERA in 21 appearances (two starts) this season.

Phillips, 27, owns a 1-1 record with a 3.48 ERA in seven relief appearances in 2021.
