by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) The Braves have launched the 2015 season better offensively than they did last year. But don't credit the top of the lineup.

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.
