Callaspo is not in the lineup Sunday against the Brewers, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Callaspo has started four straight games at the hot corner, but will give way to Pedro Ciriaco on Sunday afternoon. Callaspo is hitting just .137 in May, but with the team shallow at the position, he should continue to see relatively consistent playing time for the foreseeable future.

Callaspo will likely start seeing more playing time at third base again with Phil Gosselin (thumb) sidelined, MLB.com's Mark Bowman reports.

Gosselin started the last three games at third base, but with him out the next several weeks and Chris Johnson (hand) also on the disabled list, Callaspo figures to resume playing most days at the hot corner, with Pedro Ciriaco picking up the rest of the slack. Callaspo has had a rough month of May, going 4-for-34 (.118) without an extra-base hit.

Callaspo is out of the lineup for the third straight game Sunday against the Marlins, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Callaspo had been a steady presence at the hot corner in the early parts of the season, but after opening the year with a .571 OPS in his first 90 at-bats, he's beginning to lose playing time to Phil Gosselin, who will make his third straight start Sunday afternoon.

Callaspo is out of the lineup Friday against the Phillies, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Callaspo has hit a bit of a rough patch at the plate, going 0-for-11 over the last three games. He'll receive a day off Friday to clear his head, with Phil Gosselin starting at third base in his place and batting second.

Callaspo is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Phillies.

Callaspo will sit for the second time in three days, as Kelly Johnson steps in at third base to face right-hander Chad Billingsley. While the switch-hitting Callaspo is in line for semi-regular time with Chris Johnson (hand) out, manager Fredi Gonzalez was adamant that he will continue with his soft platoon at the position.

Callaspo is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Callaspo was the immediate beneficiary of Chris Johnson's (hand) placement on the disabled list prior to the weekend, as the 32-year-old utility man drew the last two starts for the Braves at third base. While Kelly Johnson will man the hot corner Sunday, the Braves seem inclined to play him in the outfield most nights, so he shouldn't dramatically encroach on Callaspo's playing time at third base. Nevertheless, Callaspo's stock isn't exactly soaring at the moment, as he's pieced together a meager .238/.310/.317 line over his 71 plate appearances this season.

Callaspo will start at third base and bat second Friday against the Reds.

With Chris Johnson landing on the DL with a fractured left hand, the door is open for Callaspo to see frequent time at the hot corner, though Kelly Johnson will be an option as well. The switch-hitting Callaspo has compiled a .268/.333/.357 batting line in 21 games to this point, with more walks (6) than strikeouts (5).

Callaspo is not in the lineup Sunday against the Phillies, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Callaspo had found himself in the starting lineup for three straight games prior to taking a seat for Saturday's contest. He'll now sit his second straight, but look for the 32-year-old switch-hitter to be used off the bench if the need for a pinch hitter arises.

Callaspo will start at second base and bat second Friday against the Phillies.

Callaspo will spell Jace Peterson at second base for what will be his third straight start. He will also bat in the two-hole, a spot in which Callaspo has had little success to this point (4-for-28), between Eric Young Jr. and Nick Markakis. The 32-year-old appears in line to continue seeing semi-regular time between second base and third.

Callaspo is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Marlins.

Callaspo and Chris Johnson have shared the third-base duties early this season, but neither of them will start there Wednesday with Phil Gosselin manning the hot corner. Expect the time share at third base to continue.
