Braves | Chris Johnson to return next Thursday

Thu, 21 May 2015 16:00:03 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Chris Johnson (hand) is set to rejoin the team Thursday, May 28, and he's scheduled to have five at-bats in an extended spring training game Friday, May 22. He'll take batting practice with the Braves over the weekend and head out on a minor league rehab assignment early next week. Johnson was in a platoon at third base with 3B Alberto Callaspo to start the year before he was injured.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) will likely re-enter a platoon situation with Callaspo when he returns late next week. He was hitting .279 (12-for-43) with no home runs and five RBI before his injury. Johnson will strictly be a matchup play at FantasyScore once he's back.

Braves | Alberto Callaspo returns Wednesday

Wed, 20 May 2015 14:34:32 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Alberto Callaspo is back in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 20, starting at third base and hitting second in the batting order against Tampa Bay Rays Jake Odorizzi.

Fantasy Tip: Callaspo ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) hasn't played in a full game since last Wednesday, and he's hitting a measley .209 (19-for-91) with one home run and seven RBI on the season. You should avoid him against the improving Odorizzi Wednesday.

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 | Alberto Callaspo batting second vs. Reds

Fri, 01 May 2015 12:10:16 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B/3B Alberto Callaspo is batting second and playing third base against the Cincinnati Reds Friday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Callaspo ($2,100 4.2% of cap) is just 7-for-44 over his last 14 games with four runs and three RBI, and he faces sneaky righty Anthony DeSclafani ($5,100, 10.2% of cap). Consider Callaspo a desperation flier for FantasyScore contests Friday, but his value could increase if he continues to hit high in the order.

Braves | Alberto Callaspo starting at 3B

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 13:25:40 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Alberto Callaspo is starting at third base and hitting second in the batting order against New York Mets SP Dillon Gee Wednesday, April 22. 3B Chris Johnson is sitting out.

Fantasy Tip: Callaspo ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has only 10 hits in 36 at-bats (.278) with just two RBI for the Braves so far in 2015. The switch hitter only hit .238 (61-for-256) with three of his four home runs in 2014 off of righties, too, making him a low-end second base option at FantasyScore.

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 | 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.
