Braves | Jace Peterson raking with sacks full

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 16:23:34 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is 7-for-11 (.636) with 18 RBI with the bases loaded this season.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) broke out of a 1-for-21 slump with a couple knocks Saturday. He's a solid midrange option on FantasyScore.

Braves | Jace Peterson extends hitting streak

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 19:27:56 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson went 3-for-5 with a home run, three RBI, three runs scored and a steal to extend his hit streak to eight games in a 10-8 loss to the New York Mets Sunday, June 14.

Fantasy Tip: He has five multi-hit games during the streak, and it is worth noting that is began right after Peterson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) received a cortisone shot in his thumb. He is offering great production for the price at FantasyScore.

Braves | Jace Peterson hot of late

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 15:29:30 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is hitting .381 in 21 at-bats since he received a cortisone shot June 4 for his thumb.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson's ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) resurgence at the plate is holding off top prospect Jose Peraza as summer approaches. Peterson doesn't have much power (one home runs), but he's stolen six bases and continues to reach base at the top of the batting order. He's a midrange second base option on FantasyScore.

Braves | Atlanta likes Jace Peterson at 2B

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 09:33:13 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is likely to remain at second base despite 2B Jose Peraza knocking on the doorstep of a callup, in the opinion of beat writer David O'Brien. The Braves really like Peterson's defense at second base.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has had a solid season and is a low-end matchup play at second base on FantasyScore.

Braves | Jace Peterson back in the lineup

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 09:04:02 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson (thumb) is in the starting lineup Sunday, June 7, and is batting first in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) returns to the lineup after missing the last two games because of the injury. He has picked up at least one hit in six of his last seven games and has four RBI in that span. Peterson does come with some risk because of the injury but could be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Braves | Juan Uribe starting at 2B

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 13:22:28 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Juan Uribe is starting at second base Saturday, June 6, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Uribe is filling in for injured 2B Jace Peterson (thumb), and he will bat sixth in the order against Pirates LHP Jeff Locke.

Fantasy Tip: Uribe ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is on a five-game hitting streak, but he has struggled against southpaws this season. Locke certainly isn't someone to shy away from under normal circumstances, but Uribe generally lacks upside.

Braves | Jace Peterson dealing with injury

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 13:52:18 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson (thumb) will not start in either of the next two games because of a bruised thumb. Peterson will be available to be a pinch runner.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) appears to be day-to-day at this point, so owners should monitor the situation. Pedro Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) could fill in while Peterson is sidelined but probably should not be an option on FantasyScore.

Braves | Jace Peterson delivering

Sun, 31 May 2015 06:12:28 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson has a .281 batting average with 12 runs, a home run, 12 RBI and five stolen bases over his last 25 games.

Fantasy Tip: However, Peterson ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has hit just .233 over his last 15 games since moving to the leadoff spot. The run, RBI and stolen base totals are nice, though, and if Peterson can keep his head above water in the batting average department, he's a four-category contributor. And they're few and far between among middle infielders. Peterson warrants attention in deep mixed leagues, especially if you're searching for an upgrade at the keystone position.

Braves | Jace Peterson into leadoff spot

Fri, 15 May 2015 12:45:25 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is batting first and playing second base against the Miami Marlins Friday, May 15.

Fantasy Tip: This will be Peterson's ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) second start in the leadoff spot this season, and he went 1-for-4 in the other. He is currently sporting a .410 on-base percentage over his last 10 games with 13 hits through 36 at-bats, so there is upside for FantasyScore players.

Braves | Jace Peterson hitting well lately

Wed, 13 May 2015 10:03:17 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson has a .392 average and .458 on-base percentage in the last 15 games. He's 11-for-25 (.440) with one strikeout, a .500 on-base percentage and five multi-hit games in his last seven games.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is well worth his low FantasyScore price right now while he's hot, and you may want to continue rolling with him as he faces Cincinnati Reds starter Raisel Iglesias Wednesday night.
