B.J. Upton justifying placement into leadoff spot
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The hunch of Fredi Gonzalez to hoist B.J. Upton into the leadoff position for the Braves was criticized by many, but has proven to be justified. Upton has thrived in that spot.

Upton owns a 10-game hitting streak. And though he managed just one hit in nine of those games, his average has creeped up from .202 and .211. More importantly, he has scored eight runs in that period. His two hits and stolen base keyed a Friday defeat of Arizona.

"Hopefully, I'll keep coming," he told MLB.com. "Whether it's drawing a walk or getting a hit, my job is to get on base for the guys behind me. That's the way it's been working for the last week or so."

B.J. Upton, Justin Upton homer in same game Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Braves outfielders B.J. Upton and Justin Upton both knocked solo home runs in their team's 3-2 win over the Astros Tuesday.

It was the fourth time since the brothers joined the Braves last season that they both homered in the same game, but the previous three instances all came in April 2013. B.J. owns a .203/.272/.337 line with seven home runs, 22 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 276 at-bats. Justin has hit .271/.343/.504 with 15 home runs, 39 RBI and six stolen bases in 258 at-bats.

B.J. Upton hitting leadoff Tuesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Braves outfielder B.J. Upton is hitting leadoff Tuesday.

It will be the first time Upton has hit out of the leadoff role all year. He's hitting just .202/.272/.327 over 272 at-bats, so the move is curious. Upton will take on Scott Feldman Tuesday.

B.J. Upton benched Wednesday - and maybe longer
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Braves outfielder B.J. Upton is absent from the Wednesday lineup against Philadelphia, leading to speculation that he has been permanently benched.

Upton has actually been comparatively hot lately. He has hit safely in eight of his last nine games, but is just 9 for 40 during that stretch and owns an unproductive .209/.281/.344 stat line on the year. He is also second in the majors to Ryan Howard in strikeouts with 85.

Braves considering making changes to lineup?
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

With Braves catcher prospect Christian Bethancourt on a roll offensively at Triple-A Gwinnett, Atlanta has started toying with the idea of shaking up their lineup, according to MLB.com.

The lineups moves would include moving catcher Evan Gattis to left field, Justin Upton to right field, Jason Heyward to center field and struggling outfielder B.J. Upton to the bench. The lineup changes would create an opening for Bethancourt to start at catcher.

Bethancourt has always been lauded for his defense, but the 22-year-old catcher is beginning to improve offensively. He is batting .312 with a .764 OPS in his last 37 games at Triple-A.

"We're hearing [Bethancourt] right now," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "We're paying attention."
