Braves 2B Jose Peraza could see time at shortstop this spring
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Tuesday that second-base prospect Jose Peraza could see time at shortstop this spring, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Gonzalez plans to play all the team's young middle infielders at both second base and shortstop this spring, aside from starting shortstop Andrelton Simmons. Peraza is in competition to start at second base, but an ability to handle the shortstop position could presumably increase his chances of sticking on the big-league roster even if he doesn't win a starting role.

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.

Braves' Andrelton Simmons: I'm 'taking it slow' with swinging a bat
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Although he has already resumed baseball activities, the Braves aren't going to push shortstop Andrelton Simmons (oblique) back into game action quickly. Simmons told MLB.com on Tuesday that he's "taking it slow" with swinging a bat. He's not expected to play in spring games until next week.

Braves pitcher Tyrell Jenkins turning heads in the front office
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Braves pitching prospect Tyrell Jenkins is showing flashes of what he can be for the team in spring training. Manager Fredi Gonzalez made a point to see Jenkins throw against hitters for the first time Monday, according to MLB.com.

"He's been everything he's been advertised as being," Gonzalez said. "He's a tremendous young man. He's been really impressive with his work ethic and the whole deal."

Jenkins was traded from the Cardinals as a part of the deal that sent Jason Heyward to St. Louis. 

"I'm not trying to do too much, just trying to fit in with the guys and not stand out in a negative way," Jenkins said. "I want to stand out on the field with my play and in the locker room with my work ethic and character. I'm glad to be here. Wherever I go or whatever happens, I'm just eager to see what happens this year."
