Report: Eric Young has the edge over Melvin Upton for CF spot

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9:50 am ET) Braves outfielder Eric Young Jr., a non-roster invitee, appears to have the advantage for the center field gig, after Melvin Upton Jr. went down with a foot injury, reports Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Young is hitting .321/.397/.464 with one home run, eight RBI and five stole bases in 56 at-bats this spring. Upton had the hard cast removed from his injured left foot last week, and is expected to start the season on the 15-day disabled list.

Braves' Eric Young emerges as favorite for center field

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/11/15) Braves outfielder Eric Young Jr. has emerged as the favorite to serve as the team's primary center fielder while Melvin Upton Jr. remains sidelined, MLB.com reports.

"If we had to break camp tomorrow, I'd be comfortable running him out there in center field," manager Fredi Gonzalez said Wednesday. "We've still got a lot more games to be played and a lot more work to be done."

Young has made multiple diving catches this spring while going 3 for 15 with four walks, one home run and three stolen bases.

Braves' Eric Young homers, steals base Monday vs. Nationals

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/9/15) Braves center fielder Eric Young Jr. went 1 for 4 with a home run and his third stolen base of the spring in his team's 2-1 win over the Nationals Monday.

Batting leadoff, Young made his case to win the center-field competition Monday, driving in two runs and hitting his first homer after starting spring training 1 for 7 in three games. He's also drawn three walks and been hit by a pitch once, giving him a .400 OBP in his first 15 plate appearances.

Braves' Gonzalez on Eric Young: 'Character is off the charts'

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/8/15) Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez praised outfielder Eric Young Jr. Sunday, saying the potential starter in center field is a "grinder," MLB.com reports.

"He's a grinder," Gonzalez said. "He's the son of a major-league baseball player. He's been around every locker room since he could walk. So he carries himself with the utmost professionalism. His character is off the charts."

Young, who signed a minor-league deal in February, is competing for the starting role in center field with Melvin Upton Jr. sidelined.

Braves outfielder Eric Young steals two bases in spring debut

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/4/15) Braves outfielder Eric Young is making his case to be a starter for the team this spring. Youn went 0-for-1 Wednesday with two walks and two stolen bases. 

"I'm pleased with the first day," Young said. "I'll just continue to get the work out there."

President of baseball operations John Hart thinks he has the speed to take the job.

"He's got the one ingredient that you want in center field in that he can fly," Hart said. "He's a [plus] runner. We've got time to get ready for him. He's eager to play center field. Somebody will be playing center field. EY got off to a good start. He has the make, and what he brings is a little different dynamic."
