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.

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."

Braves' Alberto Callaspo jumps out to hot start in first week

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/13/15) Braves infielder Alberto Callaspo is 7 for 13 with two walks and one double after one week of play.

Callaspo was expected to factor into the mix at second base heading into the spring but has seen all of his playing time at third base, starting at the position in four of the team's first six games. However, the switch hitter will look to stay hot Monday as the team's starting second baseman and No. 2 batter against the Marlins.

The Braves are favorites (-110) against the Marlins Monday.

Jace Peterson draws start at second base in Braves' opener

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/6/15) Braves infielder Jace Peterson started at second base in Monday's season opener against the Marlins. Peterson appears to have won the starting second base job for Atlanta over Alberto Callaspo, who started at third base Monday.

The rookie Peterson hit .324 (22 for 68) with no home runs, four RBI, five doubles, 10 walks, 12 runs and 16 strikeouts in 25 spring games. He also had three stolen bases.
