Braves to continue platoon approach at third base
by Jason Butt |

Though Chris Johnson is out for three-to-six weeks following a hand injury, the Braves aren't planning to change up their strategy at third base, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution

For the season, manager Fredi Gonzalez has been rotating Johnson and Alberto Callaspo based on matchups on a game-to-game basis. With Johnson out, Gonzalez said he's not going to make Callaspo the lone third baseman. 

The Braves figure to use Phil Gosselin in the third base mix, as well as some potential minor-league additions, Gonzalez said. 

Gonzalez is high on Gosselin's potential as a major-leaguer. 

“I think he’s a major league player,” Gonzalez said. “He can play multiple positions, he can pinch hit. He’s a very valuable piece in the National League team. He can play third, second, short. You can even run him in the outfield like we did in spring training.”

Braves hitting better, but don't credit top of the lineup
by Marty Gitlin |

The Braves have launched the 2015 season better offensively than they did last year. But don't credit the top of the lineup.

The team has yet to score two or fewer runs in a game. They did so four times and were blanked twice in their first seven games of 2014. Yet the first two hitters in the lineup are struggling mightily.

Braves leadoff hitters are 8-for-37 (.216) with a .275 on-base percentage. But they've been raking compared to those hitting behind them. The second spot, which has been manned by Jace Peterson, Alberto Callaspo, Phil Gosselin and Andrelton Simmons, has produced a .114 average with no extra-base hits, .162 OBP and .114 slugging percentage.

Braves using rotation of Callaspo, Johnson, Peterson at 2B and 3B
by Michael Hurcomb | CBS Sports Staff

With Chris Johnson, Alberto Callaspo and Jace Peterson all off to promising starts in 2015, Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez is faced with the dilemma of finding playing time for all three players. Although, it is an issue right now Gonzalez is fine with since all three players are producing.

"It's nice to have flexibility," Gonzalez said, per "It keeps everybody engaged and you feel like you have the advantage off the bench. It's a good mixture right now."

Peterson has started five of seven games at second base, Johnson has started three of seven at third base, while Callaspo has started four times at third and once at second base.

"If I play, I'm going to be ready to play," Johnson said. "If not, I'm going to do whatever I can to help the team on the bench or to get ready for a pinch-hit. Right now, we're winning ballgames and I'll never complain being on a winning team."

Braves' Alberto Callaspo jumps out to hot start in first week
by R.J. White |

Braves infielder Alberto Callaspo is 7 for 13 with two walks and one double after one week of play.

Callaspo was expected to factor into the mix at second base heading into the spring but has seen all of his playing time at third base, starting at the position in four of the team's first six games. However, the switch hitter will look to stay hot Monday as the team's starting second baseman and No. 2 batter against the Marlins.

The Braves are favorites (-110) against the Marlins Monday.
