Braves | Jurries battling for spot, time at first base

Updating previous reports, David O'Brien, of the Atlanta Journal Constitution, reports Atlanta Braves OF/1B James Jurries continues to battle for a spot at first base with veteran OF/1B Brian Jordan. The team seems to be focused on having one of the two fill a role at the position, possibly in a platoon situation. While Jurries had little experience at first base, he's been able to handle it without any problems and the team has felt he's looked natural at the position. Jurries hit .452 with two home runs and a team-high 12 RBIs in the Grapefruit League.
