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.

Braves' Jace Peterson: Competing for primary utility spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson will compete with Chase d'Arnaud for the primary utility spot on the Braves' bench, Zak Kerr of MLB.com reports.

For a rebuilding club, the Braves actually have a fairly set starting lineup following the acquisition of Brandon Phillips, so playing time could be tough to come by for the team's bench. Peterson's better offensive resume could make him manager Brian Snitker's preferred option when someone needs a rest, but the team also lacks any depth in the outfield -- starters Matt Kemp, Ender Inciarte and Nick Markakis are currently the only outfielders on the 40-man roster -- so if d'Arnaud or Peterson show they can handle center field on a semi-regular basis, they could see enough at-bats to become a viable option in deep NL-only leagues.

For a rebuilding club, the Braves actually have a fairly set starting lineup following the acquisition of Brandon Phillips, so playing time could be tough to come by for the team's bench. D'Arnaud did play everywhere but pitcher, catcher and first base in 2016, however, giving him a leg up in the battle.

Braves' Jaime Garcia: Sharp in Tuesday batting practice session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia looked good Tuesday in a batting practice session as he faced hitters for the first time this spring, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

While the Braves certainly aren't expecting Garcia to match the 2.43 ERA and 1.05 WHIP he put up in 2015, they are hoping he can improve on last season's 4.67 ERA and 1.37 WHIP -- both career worsts for the left-hander -- while still providing 30 starts, something he hadn't done since 2011 prior to tossing 171.2 innings in 2016. The 30-year-old is in the final year of his current contract, so he'll have plenty of incentive to prove he can be a valuable and reliable member of the Atlanta rotation as he heads into free agency.

Braves' Sean Newcomb: Expected to begin season at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newcomb will likely begin the season with Triple-A Gwinnett, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Walks remain the biggest obstacle for Newcomb, but he showed some improvement down the stretch last season at Double-A, posting a 3.7 BB/9 over his final nine starts, markedly better than his overall 4.6 BB/9. If he's able to further hone his command at Triple-A, he could make his major league debut in 2017, but don't expect the Braves to rush one of their top pitching prospects and risk hurting his confidence.
