Braves' Alex Jackson: To try catching again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson will be given a try at catcher this season, Braves general manager John Coppolella said during a Twitter question and answer session.

Coppolella previously has admitted that catcher is a significant area of need for the future, and Jackson's bat hasn't lived up to an outfielder billing. Still, the Mariners' 2014 first-round pick could find new life at the position that made him a strong high school prospect. He'll restart that trek in 2017, likely with Atlanta's High-A Brevard County, and is worth watching or stashing in fantasy dynasty leagues.

Braves' Bartolo Colon: Will start spring opener Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colon will get the start Saturday in the Braves' Grapefruit League opener against the Blue Jays, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

He'll be followed in the spring rotation by Julio Teheran, R.A. Dickey, Mike Foltynewicz and Jaime Garcia, but at this point there's been no indication from manager Brian Snitker that the regular season rotation will line up the same way. The 43-year-old Colon heads into 2017 having pitched at least 190 innings in four straight seasons and won at least 10 games in five straight, and he's got a chance this year to pass Dennis Martinez as the all-time winningest pitcher from Latin America in MLB history.

Braves' Sanders Commings: Inks minor-league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Commings signed a minor-league contract with the Braves on Thursday, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Commings was selected in the 37th round of the 2008 MLB entry draft, but elected to give up the sport in favor of pursuing a career in NFL. After a semi-successful attempt, he's decided to turn his attention back to baseball. Braves general manager John Coppolella described him as a "tremendous athlete" and he will likely begin his attempt at a comeback at the lower minor league levels as an outfielder.

Braves' Aaron Blair: Continuing to hone slider
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blair feels that the slider he added to his arsenal late last season can become a true out pitch for him, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. "Developing that pitch was big for me at the end of the year, and hopefully it's big for me moving on," Blair said. "Throwing it [in live batting practice on Tuesday], I had a good feel for it. It was late [break] and I kept it down in the zone. That's pretty much all you can ask for."

His 10-strikeout performance against the Tigers in his final start of 2016 certainly offered a tantalizing glimpse of his potential, but the Braves' offseason pitching acquisitions all but ensure Blair will head back to Triple-A Gwinnett to begin the season. If he continues to refine his slider, however, he could be the first starter recalled if injuries hit the rotation, and he'll be an intriguing stash in keeper formats.

Braves' Emilio Bonifacio: Could break camp on big league roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio's experience in the outfield could give him an advantage when it comes to winning a spot on the Braves' bench this spring.

As it currently stands, Atlanta only has three outfielders on their 40-man roster -- starters Matt Kemp, Ender Inciarte and Nick Markakis -- so they'll be looking for depth during spring training. Jace Peterson and Chase d'Arnaud are considered the primary options to win utility roles, but they've seen action in the outfield in a combined 29 big league games between them. Bonifacio, on the other hand, played 65 games in center field as recently as 2014. That resume could win him the fourth outfielder role coming out of camp, and the 31-year-old's 37 steals in 107 games at Triple-A last year would then make him an intriguing stash in deep NL-only leagues.
