Braves' Jace Peterson plates game-winning run on Saturday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/23/15) Braves second baseman Jace Peterson went 2 for 6 at the plate in Atlanta's 3-2 win over the Brewers on Saturday in 11 innings.
Peterson was just 1 for 5 before stepping to the plate in the 11th with runners on second and third. He ripped the first pitch he saw from Brandon Kintzler into left center field to score the game-winning run for Atlanta.
"[Peterson] had a great at-bat," said Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez to MLB.com. "First pitch, got him. Base hit. When you play that long, especially at home, it's nice to win those games."
Peterson is now hitting .264 with 18 RBI in 129 at-bats this season.
"I was trying to be aggressive," Peterson said. "Trying to get a fastball, and he threw it first pitch, so I was just trying to get a base hit and trying to get the run in."
Braves 2B Jace Peterson cools off after two-week tear
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) The hot streak that sent the numbers soaring for Braves second baseman Jace Peterson is decidedly over.
Peterson went on a 20-for-51 tear in late April and early May to catapult his average from .171 to .293 and increase his on-base percentage to .362. He has not gone into a slump, but he has certainly cooled off. Peterson has just five hits in 27 at-bats since.
His slash line is now at .269/.346/.328.
Braves 2B Jace Peterson hits slam to remember Saturday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/16/15) Braves leadoff hitter Jace Peterson doesn't remember ever hitting a grand slam. Apparently, not even in little league, according to 680 The Fan.
Now he has one to remember forever. He sent one flying over the fence in right with the bases loaded in the second inning of his team's Saturday victory in Miami.
"Any time you can get the first one out of the way and it be a grand slam, it's awesome," Peterson said, per MLB.com.
The second baseman broke an 0-for-9 slide with the blast and added a single to improve his slash line to .276/.339/.333.
"He's a steady baseball player," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "He just keeps getting better the more you run him out there."
Braves move Markakis to cleanup spot; Peterson leading off
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/15/15) With Kelly Johnson on the disabled list, Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez opted to move Nick Markakis from the leadoff spot to the cleanup spot for Friday's contest against the Marlins, according to MLB.com. Jace Peterson was inserted to the top of the order.
Markakis is hitting .302 (38 for 126) with no homers and 10 RBI in 33 games this season.
Atlanta is an underdog (+119) at Miami, per VegasInsider.com.
Braves 2B Jace Peterson gets breather on Friday vs. Nationals
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/8/15) Braves second baseman Jace Peterson will be getting his first day off in nearly two weeks, as he is out of the starting lineup Friday against the Nationals. Peterson has been hitting well lately, batting .417 with five RBI over his last 11 games, though he has no extra base hits in that span.
Phil Gosselin will get the start at second, batting seventh. This is just Gosselin's fourth start of the year.
|2014 summary: Jace Peterson hit above .300 in stops at Double-A and Triple-A, and he also got into 27 games with the Padres. His first taste of major league action did not go so well, as he went just 6 for 53 (.113). While Peterson had stolen 42 bases in the California League in 2013, he mustered only 18 of them last season, including two with the Padres.
Playing time status: Peterson was traded to the Braves last December and is a strong contender to begin the season as their starting second baseman.
2015 outlook: Because he has a history of walking frequently and not striking out much, Peterson could have value in deeper points leagues. He also has some stolen base potential, which makes him an intriguing late-round option in deeper Rotisserie leagues.
