Braves 2B Jose Peraza could see time at shortstop this spring
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/3/15) Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Tuesday that second-base prospect Jose Peraza could see time at shortstop this spring, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Gonzalez plans to play all the team's young middle infielders at both second base and shortstop this spring, aside from starting shortstop Andrelton Simmons. Peraza is in competition to start at second base, but an ability to handle the shortstop position could presumably increase his chances of sticking on the big-league roster even if he doesn't win a starting role.
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."

|(11/19/14) The Braves have added seven players to the 40-man roster on Wednesday.
Mauricio Cabrera, Williams Perez, Kyle Kubitza, Tyrell Jenkins, Yean Carlos Gil, Brandon Cunniff and Jose Peraza all had their contracts purchased on Wednesday. Peraza was the co-winner of the team's Minor League Player of the Year last season.
Report: Braves won't spend money on 2B while waiting for Peraza
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/11/14) The Braves plan is for prospect Jose Peraza to take over at second base in a year or possibly sooner if needed, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The team feels they can survive until Peraza is ready and don't need to spend money on a stopgap option.
Peraza is considered the Braves' top prospect by MLB.com. Peraza is lauded for his solid defense and ability to hit for contact. He hit .339 in 110 games between Class A and Double-A in 2014. He also had 60 stolen bases.
|2014 summary: Though a good contact hitter and base stealer from the time he began his minor-league career at age 17, Jose Peraza took it to another level last year, batting .339 with 60 stolen bases. And he kept it up even after graduating to Double-A, often a reality check for surging prospects, batting .335 with 25 steals there over the final two-fifths of the season.|
Playing time status: With the performance, Peraza emerged as arguably the Braves' top prospect and certainly their second baseman of the future, and they traded Tommy La Stella to make sure they'd have a spot for him as soon as he proves ready. Spring training seems like a long shot for the 20-year-old, but you shouldn't rule out a midseason debut.
2015 outlook: Peraza has his flaws -- he's never seen a pitch he didn't like and is mostly a singles hitter at this stage of his career -- but the hype on him is justified given what he does right. In mixed leagues, his debut is still too far down the road for you to bother with him, but at least in Rotisserie formats, he should factor whenever he does get the call.
