Braves | Jace Peterson not a regular

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 18:24:48 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is not yet a regular fixture in the lineup, according to manager Fredi Gonzalez. The skipper refuted a report which said Peterson will be the regular second baseman. Gonzalez said Monday, April 27, he will continue to mix and match his lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson has made 13 starts in 17 games. However, he is hitting just .182 entering play Monday, so FantasyScore players haven't had much use for him even at a temptingly low salary of $2,100 (or 4.2% of cap).

Braves | Jace Peterson not playing Tuesday

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 13:49:54 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 21, with 2B Phil Gosselin starting instead.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) looks like he is out due to the Mets starting Jon Niese. Gosselin ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is not worth the salary due to a small sample size and one hit in his last 10 at-bats.

Braves | Jace Peterson playing Sunday

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 07:28:33 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is starting at second base against the Toronto Blue Jays Sunday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has recorded a hit in five of his last six games but has not posted a multi-hit game this season. Peterson could be a cheaper option to consider on FantasyScore, but owners may want to look for a better option.

Braves | Alberto Callaspo draws another start

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 15:04:30 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Alberto Callaspo is starting at second base and hitting second against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Tuesday, April 14. 2B Jace Peterson will be on the bench again.

Fantasy Tip: Callaspo ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hot to start the year (.471, 8-for-17) and is earning his spot in the Bravos' lineup. He'll be a sleeper option at FantasyScore while he's swinging the stick well, but he doesn't offer a whole lot of offensive upside to daily gamers.

Braves | Alberto Callaspo starting at 2B

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 11:42:15 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Alberto Callaspo is starting at second base and hitting second in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos Monday, April 13. 2B Jace Peterson is sitting the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Callaspo ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) isn't a bad buy-low option for second base at FantasyScore, especially when considering that the Braves torched Latos just last week.

Braves | Jace Peterson out vs. Mets

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 14:12:26 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Jon Niese Friday, April 10. 2B Phil Gosselin is receiving the start at the keystone and is hitting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is not an attractive FantasyScore option for owners looking to spend big money elsewhere in their lineup.

Braves | Jace Peterson likely to win at 2B

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 06:44:29 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is expected to win the starting second base job. He could receive occasional days off against lefties, though.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson has impressed by hitting .341 in 44 spring at-bats thus far. At $2,000 (4.0% of cap), he's an enticing bargain on FantasyScore.

Braves | Jose Pereza among Braves' options at 2B

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 18:33:28 -0800

Atlanta Braves 2B Jose Peraza, 2B Alberto Callaspo, 2B Phil Gosselin, SS Jace Peterson and 3B Kelly Johnson are all part of a "wide open" competition for the starting second base job, manager Fredi Gonzalez said Thursday, Feb. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Peraza is the Braves' top-ranked prospect, and whether or not he wins the starting gig out of Spring Training, he is probably worth stashing, especially in NL-only leagues.
