Braves to use Jace Peterson as primary second baseman
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(10:36 am ET) Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez indicated Sunday that he's returning to his initial plan to use infielder Jace Peterson as his primary second baseman, MLB.com reports.
Peterson has shared time at second base with Alberto Callaspo, who has also made eight starts at third base, and Phil Gosselin, leading to Peterson seeing just 11 of a possible 17 starts at the position. He's seen action all over the starting lineup, batting first or second in four of the team's first five games but spending most of his time batting seventh or eighth as of late.
Peterson has hit just .171/.239/.220 in 41 at-bats. He's starting at second base and batting sixth in Sunday's matchup with the Phillies, in which the Braves are underdogs (+100).
Braves' Philip Gosselin gets start at short over Jace Peterson
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) Braves infielder Philip Gosselin will start at shortstop in Tuesday's game at the Mets, in place of regular starter Jace Peterson. He'll hit eighth in the lineup.
It's just Gosselin's second start at short this season. He's also started one game at third.
Gosselin is hitting .100 this season, with a stolen base and two RBI.
The Braves are +135 underdogs at the Mets.
Braves hitting better, but don't credit top of the lineup
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/17/15) The Braves have launched the 2015 season better offensively than they did last year. But don't credit the top of the lineup.
The team has yet to score two or fewer runs in a game. They did so four times and were blanked twice in their first seven games of 2014. Yet the first two hitters in the lineup are struggling mightily.
Braves leadoff hitters are 8-for-37 (.216) with a .275 on-base percentage. But they've been raking compared to those hitting behind them. The second spot, which has been manned by Jace Peterson, Alberto Callaspo, Phil Gosselin and Andrelton Simmons, has produced a .114 average with no extra-base hits, .162 OBP and .114 slugging percentage.
Manager: Jace Peterson to start for Braves on Wednesday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez told MLB.com that rookie second baseman Jace Peterson will start again Wednesday against Miami after being absent from the lineup Tuesday.
Peterson, who had started five of seven previous games and played in all of them, has four singles in 20 at-bats, but has scored four runs.
Braves using rotation of Callaspo, Johnson, Peterson at 2B and 3B
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) With Chris Johnson, Alberto Callaspo and Jace Peterson all off to promising starts in 2015, Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez is faced with the dilemma of finding playing time for all three players. Although, it is an issue right now Gonzalez is fine with since all three players are producing.
"It's nice to have flexibility," Gonzalez said, per MLB.com. "It keeps everybody engaged and you feel like you have the advantage off the bench. It's a good mixture right now."
Peterson has started five of seven games at second base, Johnson has started three of seven at third base, while Callaspo has started four times at third and once at second base.
"If I play, I'm going to be ready to play," Johnson said. "If not, I'm going to do whatever I can to help the team on the bench or to get ready for a pinch-hit. Right now, we're winning ballgames and I'll never complain being on a winning team."
|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.
