"I'm sure that monkey coming off his back will help," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Just get back into the zone because that’s something he had been doing well coming out of spring training, wasn’t chasing. He’s been doing it for the most part this season. He’s been doing really well at maintaining the integrity of his strike zone. I’m fully confident he’ll do that again."

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Just kind of finding that rhythm of maybe not trying to do too much and being able to finally start to kind of relax. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is not so much focus on our results and just kind of focus on the things you can control."

"Sometimes you'd like to think you're mentally tough enough for whatever, but sometimes you just need to see something good happen," McGehee said. "It goes a long ways towards helping building confidence."

Braves to continue platoon approach at third base


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) Though Chris Johnson is out for three-to-six weeks following a hand injury, the Braves aren't planning to change up their strategy at third base, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Gonzalez is high on Gosselin's potential as a major-leaguer. 

“I think he’s a major league player,” Gonzalez said. “He can play multiple positions, he can pinch hit. He’s a very valuable piece in the National League team. He can play third, second, short. You can even run him in the outfield like we did in spring training.”
