Braves | Alberto Callaspo sitting Sunday

Sun, 17 May 2015 07:31:20 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Alberto Callaspo is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 17, against the Miami Marlins. 2B Phil Gosselin will start at third base and hit second in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin (($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should receive some consideration due to his enviable position in the batting order and the fact that Atlanta goes up against the rusty Henderson Alvarez. Gosselin is 6-for-his-last-12, with two extra-base hits. Gosselin also has the ability to steal bases, making him worthy of GPP consideration on FantasyScore.

Braves | Alberto Callaspo sitting vs. Marlins

Fri, 15 May 2015 13:10:54 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Alberto Callaspo is not in the starting lineup against the Miami Marlins Friday, May 15. 2B Phil Gosselin is batting second and manning the hot corner Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Callaspo ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. He failed to register a hit in three consecutive games and is currently mired in a 4-for-36 funk. Callaspo should be reserved to cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, and FantasyScore players will want to avoid him until he shows some life at the dish. Gosselin ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be viewed as a desperation flier for daily contests.

Braves | Phil Gosselin batting second

Fri, 15 May 2015 12:54:44 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Phil Gosselin is batting second and playing third base against the Miami Marlins Friday, May 15.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a career .272 hitting over 162 career at-bats, and with a modest minor league track record (.706 career OPS), he shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a desperation flier in daily contests. However, batting second in front of Freddie Freeman increases Gosselin's upside.

Braves | Jace Peterson sitting Friday

Fri, 08 May 2015 13:26:07 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 8. 2B Phil Gosselin is starting at second base and hitting seventh in the batting order against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) isn't worth your time at FantasyScore.

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 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 | 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.

Braves | Alberto Callaspo to play 3B in spring

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 10:49:18 -0800

Atlanta Braves 2B Alberto Callaspo will play plenty of third base this spring, and if he shares the hot corner this year, INF Phil Gosselin could be the primary second baseman.

Fantasy Tip: Callaspo will be a serviceable utility infielder for the Braves this year, but he's best to be owned on NL-only rosters, as his playing time could fluctuate at third and second base.
