Bourn is competing for the final reserve spot on the Braves roster, Mark Bowman of reports.

Outfielders Drew Stubbs and Emilio Bonifacio are also in the running for the roster spot. After seeming to have a spot for him earlier in the spring, veteran Jeff Francoeur swiped a spot on the roster and put Bourn's status in jeopardy. Manager Fredi Gonzalez likes his leadership skills which could give him an edge over the other two competitors, but his .245 spring batting average could also lead the Braves to consider another option.
