Braves' Julio Teheran: Sharp in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Teheran tossed two shutout innings, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out one, in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros.

He threw 18 of 30 pitches for strikes and worked in all his breaking pitches, as he gets ready to pitch for Team Colombia in the WBC. Teheran failed to reach 200 innings last year for the first time since 2013, but his 2.0 BB/9 was the best rate of his career, and with an improving team around him the 26-year-old could be headed for a big 2017.

Braves' Dustin Peterson: Good start to spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson replaced Matt Kemp in left field during Saturday's Grapefruit League opener against the Blue Jays and went 2-for-3 with a run scored.

The 22-year-old looked good in 2016 in his first taste of the high minors, hitting .282/.343/.431 in 524 at-bats for Double-A Mississippi with 12 home runs and 88 RBI. Peterson will start the season at Triple-A and isn't yet on the 40-man roster, which could hurt his chances of getting a call-up over the summer, but another solid campaign could put him in line for a bench spot in the majors in 2018. Barring an improvement in his power stroke, however, his eventual fantasy upside remains limited.

Braves' Mauricio Cabrera: Already hitting triple digits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera threw a shutout inning in Saturday's Grapefruit League opener against the Blue Jays, allowing one hit and one walk, and the stadium radar gun recording him hitting 100 mph with his fastball on four separate pitches, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Stadium guns can be a little generous, but that's still ridiculous velocity for the last week of February. Cabrera will fill a setup role for the Braves this season behind closer Jim Johnson, and attempt to get his results to match the raw stuff he brings to the mound after he managed just a 7.5 K/9 in 38.1 major league innings last year.

Braves' Bartolo Colon: Tosses two innings in spring opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colon threw two innings in Saturday's Grapefruit League opener against the Blue Jays, allowing one run on three hits while striking out one.

He ran into a spot of trouble in the second inning, after Toronto prospects Rowdy Tellez and Anthony Alford hit back-to-back doubles to begin the frame, but Colon got out of the jam without further damage. The 43-year-old is set to be an innings-eater for the Braves this season, and despite his advanced baseball age, there's no reason to think he can't make at least 30 starts for the fifth straight year.

Braves' Emilio Bonifacio: Two hits in spring opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio went 2-for-2 with a walk, a double, a run scored and two RBI in Saturday's Grapefruit League opener against the Blue Jays.

He replaced Nick Markakis in right field before shifting over to left later in the game, and it's that versatility that gives Bonifacio an edge when it comes to winning a spot on the Braves' bench. Of course, if the 31-year-old continues to hit like this during the spring, it'll make the front office's decision that much easier.
