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."

Report: Mets expected to release one player at non-tender deadline
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/1/14) The Mets are expected to release one player at Tuesday's non-tender deadline, according to ESPN. Team insiders said it appears Eric Young is an option to be released, while beleaguered shortstop Ruben Tejada is safe.
Young is projected to earn roughly $2.25 million in arbitration. The Mets feel they can get comparable production from a fifth-outfielder type for a lower salary, according to sources.
