    The three most recent prior to the rise of McCann were Lopez, Estrada and Perez. Lopez was a power hitter (he has the single season record for hr by a catcher) Perez was a veteran who was towards the end of his career and Estada was a young kid with a sort of odd looking batting stance. He seemed to be pretty good but i think they traded him and he soon fell out of the major leagues. Hope i helped

    Braves Catcher

    I believe it was Johnny Estrada. He played for the Braves in 2003, 2004, and 2005. Brian McCann made his major league debut in 2005 but was the backup.

  • Johnny Estrada was the most recent catcher.

    Eddie Perez was the backup for Javy Lopez, and a fill in until they could get a better catcher for games when Lopez became a free agent.
