|(3/9/15) Braves outfielder Todd Cunningham did not travel with the team Monday after fouling a ball off his toe the previous day, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The issue isn't considered serious, and Cunningham is expected to return to action Tuesday. The outfielder is competing for the starting role in center field and is 3 for 10 with two walks in five spring games.
Braves' Todd Cunningham confident in ability to replace Upton
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(3/1/15) Braves outfielder Todd Cunningham believes he is the perfect replacement to fill in for Melvin Upton, reports MLB.com.
"You can call me the safe bet," Cunningham said. "You can say I'm not the sexy pick or whatever you want. But I still feel I can personally bring a lot of value to a team. So, if I get a chance to compete out there, I plan to bring everything that I've got."
He added that he doesn't have one particular skill that sets him apart, but he is a good all-around player.
"I'm definitely not trying to trick anybody and I'm definitely not trying to be anything that I'm not," Cunningham said. "When I describe what kind of player I am, I wasn't gifted with unbelievable pop or blazing speed. I pride myself on doing the little things. From what I've heard, I'm the kind of player that the more you see me, the more you like me."
Eury Perez, Eric Young Jr. headline Braves' CF options
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/28/15) The Braves have four candidates to replace the injured Melvin Upton Jr. in center field, the Atlanta Journal-Constition reports.
Eury Perez, Eric Young Jr., Todd Cunningham and Zoilo Almonte all have a chance to win the team's center field job this spring while Upton, who is expected to be sidelined until at least early May, recovers from a left foot injury.
"You’re kidding anybody if you don’t see it as an opportunity," Young said Saturday. "It’s an unfortunate situation. Melvin hopefully gets healthy soon and gets back to playing the game that he loves the way I know he can. But in the meantime, I came into camp with a bunch of gloves, ready for whatever situation or scenario they threw at me. And right now with my speed, we’ve got a void in center and I’ve got this opportunity and just got to go out there and make the most of it."
Perez may be the early favorite as the only natural center fielder of the bunch, but Young is the only player of the quartet with significant major-league experience. Cunningham is a career minor-leaguer and Almonte has limited experience in center field.
"I think the other three guys have played (center) more than Almonte, but we’ll see," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "We’ll run them out there and watch. Even E.Y. Jr. has got, I think, 30-some games in center field in the big leagues. Perez is a natural center fielder. (Braves third-base coach) Bo (Porter) had him with the Nationals and he really likes him as a defender."
