Braves outfielder Eric Young steals two bases in spring debut
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Braves outfielder Eric Young is making his case to be a starter for the team this spring. Youn went 0-for-1 Wednesday with two walks and two stolen bases. 

"I'm pleased with the first day," Young said. "I'll just continue to get the work out there."

President of baseball operations John Hart thinks he has the speed to take the job.

"He's got the one ingredient that you want in center field in that he can fly," Hart said. "He's a [plus] runner. We've got time to get ready for him. He's eager to play center field. Somebody will be playing center field. EY got off to a good start. He has the make, and what he brings is a little different dynamic."

Braves CF Eric Young batting leadoff in spring opener
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Braves outfielder Eric Young Jr. will play in center field and bat leadoff in the team's spring-training opener against the Mets Wednesday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Young is competing with three other outfielders to serve as the team's center fielder while Melvin Upton Jr. is on the mend. He hit .229/.299/.311 with one home run, 17 RBI and 30 stolen bases in 280 at-bats with the Mets last season. Young has delivered a career .254/.321/.333 line in 1,204 at-bats while batting atop the lineup.

Eury Perez, Eric Young Jr. headline Braves' CF options
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Braves have four candidates to replace the injured Melvin Upton Jr. in center field, the Atlanta Journal-Constition reports.

Eury Perez, Eric Young Jr., Todd Cunningham and Zoilo Almonte all have a chance to win the team's center field job this spring while Upton, who is expected to be sidelined until at least early May, recovers from a left foot injury.

"You’re kidding anybody if you don’t see it as an opportunity," Young said Saturday. "It’s an unfortunate situation. Melvin hopefully gets healthy soon and gets back to playing the game that he loves the way I know he can. But in the meantime, I came into camp with a bunch of gloves, ready for whatever situation or scenario they threw at me. And right now with my speed, we’ve got a void in center and I’ve got this opportunity and just got to go out there and make the most of it."

Perez may be the early favorite as the only natural center fielder of the bunch, but Young is the only player of the quartet with significant major-league experience. Cunningham is a career minor-leaguer and Almonte has limited experience in center field.

"I think the other three guys have played (center) more than Almonte, but we’ll see," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "We’ll run them out there and watch. Even E.Y. Jr. has got, I think, 30-some games in center field in the big leagues. Perez is a natural center fielder. (Braves third-base coach) Bo (Porter) had him with the Nationals and he really likes him as a defender."
