The Braves made it official Tuesday naming the players they will call up Wednesday when the rosters can be expanded to as many as 40 players.

Atlanta will call up left-handed pitcher Mike Dunn, right-handed pitchers Kenshin Kawakami and Scott Proctor, catcher J.C. Boscan, and first baseman Freddie Freeman.

Also, outfielder Nate McLouth was called up Tuesday before game two of the series with the Mets. To make room for McLouth on the 25-man roster, Kawakami was placed on the Danville roster. But that was just a procedural move. Kawakami will be activated Wednesday once the rosters expand.

Troy Glaus will be recalled from his rehabilitation assignment in Gwinnett on Thursday.

The Braves will also recalled Cristian Martinez and Craig Kimbrel after Gwinnett
