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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
