Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez: 2B gig is 'wide open'
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/26/15) Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez confirmed to reporters following Thursday's full-squad workout that the second baseman position is a "wide open" competition, and that Jose Peraza, Alberto Callaspo, Phil Gosselin and Jace Peterson are all entering camp with a chance to make the club, per MLB.com.
"It's wide open," Gonzalez said. "It's all depending on how we want to work second base, the infield and even the bench."
Phil Gosselin in, Tommy La Stella out of Saturday lineup
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/16/14) Slumping Braves second baseman Tommy La Stella seems to be losing at-bats at least temporarily to newcomer Phil Gosselin - even against right-handers - and Saturday is an example. The latter is playing over the former against Oakland.
This marks the third start in four games for Gosselin, who slugged two hits, including a home run, Friday night. La Stella has just one hit in his last 15 at-bats.
Phil Gosselin called back up Saturday
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(7/26/14) The Braves recalled pitcher Phil Gosselin from Triple-A Gwinnett Saturday, less than two weeks after he was last sent down.
Gosselin has yet to appear in a major-league gab this season, and has just two hits in six career at-bats.
Braves send Phil Gosselin back to Triple-A
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(7/14/14) One day after recalling infielder Phil Gosselin from Triple-A Gwinnett, the Braves optioned him back to Gwinnett Monday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Gosselin was brought up by the team while second baseman Dan Uggla served a one-game suspension, but he didn't appear in Sunday's game. Gosselin returns to a .345/.381/.494 line at Gwinnett with five home runs, 30 RBI and six stolen bases in 348 at-bats.
Phil Gosselin promoted from Triple-A
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/13/14) The Braves announced late Saturday night they recalled infielder Phil Gosselin from Triple-A Gwinnett. The team will announce a corresponding move Sunday.
Gosselin, who earned All-Star honors at Triple-A, hit .345 with five homers, 27 doubles, 30 RBI and 56 runs for Gwinnett.
|2014 summary: After a mostly lackluster minor-league career that for some reason earned him a cup of coffee in 2013, Phil Gosselin showed in his return to the minors in 2014 that he might just have a future in the big leagues after all, batting .344 in 378 at-bats at Triple-A Gwinnett. By the end of the season, he was the primary second baseman for the big-league club, replacing the struggling Tommy La Stella (who was himself replacing the ineffective Dan Uggla).|
Playing time status: Of course, Gosselin didn't show all that much with the playing time he got, which is partly why the Braves signed Alberto Callaspo this offseason. Callaspo isn't for sure the Braves' everyday second baseman, but he's more a lock for the opening day roster than Gosselin is. And either would simply be holding down the fort until top prospect Jose Peraza is ready.
2015 outlook: Gosselin doesn't hit for power and doesn't run especially well, so his Fantasy value is tied directly to his batting average. And unfortunately, his poor strikeout-to-walk ratio in the majors last year doesn't offer much hope on that front. He has the pedigree of a bench player and is likely destined for that role long-term, so drafting him even in NL-only leagues is a stretch.
