Braves' Jace Peterson: Competing for primary utility spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson will compete with Chase d'Arnaud for the primary utility spot on the Braves' bench, Zak Kerr of MLB.com reports.

For a rebuilding club, the Braves actually have a fairly set starting lineup following the acquisition of Brandon Phillips, so playing time could be tough to come by for the team's bench. Peterson's better offensive resume could make him manager Brian Snitker's preferred option when someone needs a rest, but the team also lacks any depth in the outfield -- starters Matt Kemp, Ender Inciarte and Nick Markakis are currently the only outfielders on the 40-man roster -- so if d'Arnaud or Peterson show they can handle center field on a semi-regular basis, they could see enough at-bats to become a viable option in deep NL-only leagues.

Braves' Jace Peterson: Bumped to utility role after Phillips trade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson will begin the season on the Braves' bench following the acquisition of Brandon Phillips, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

He was already going to have to compete with Sean Rodriguez for playing time at second base, but after Rodriguez's shoulder injury led to the trade for Phillips, the depth chart at the keystone got shaken up. Peterson saw brief action last season in the outfield and one game at third base, but should transition into a utility role on a full-time basis in 2017.

Braves' Jace Peterson: Will have tenuous hold on 2B job to begin 2017
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Peterson is expected to begin the season as the Braves starting second baseman.

He didn't do much with his 350 at-bats last year, and with top prospect Ozzie Albies knocking on the door, Peterson's hold on the starting job at the keystone may only last until Albies clears the Super-2 deadline in May, which makes him a risky fantasy investment even as a late-round pick. Long-term, Peterson may have to transition to a utility role to keep his spot on the 25-man roster.

Braves' Jace Peterson: Returns to lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Peterson (ankle) is in the starting lineup Sunday against the Nationals, batting seventh and playing second base.

Peterson missed the past two games due to an ankle injury, but it seems the 26-year-old's ankle is good enough for him to play in the series finale. As long as his ankle stays healthy, he'll likely get plenty of innings at the keystone for the remainder of the season.

Braves' Jace Peterson: Remains out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (ankle) remains out of the lineup Saturday against the Nationals.

Peterson was scratched from Friday's lineup with a sprained ankle, and the ailment will keep him out of action for at least one more day. Gordon Beckham will get the nod at second base Saturday, as was the case Friday night.
