Alberto Callaspo 1B/2B.. ATL 12 Days

Callaspo is expected to see significant playing time at third base during spring training, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.It sounds like manager Fredi Gonzalez is kicking around the idea of having Callaspo and Chris Johnson share time at the hot corner, which could open up playing time at the keystone for Phil Gosselin, Kelly Johnson and/or Jace Peterson. Gonzalez did not rule Callaspo out of the mix at second base, but this new uncertainty surrounding his playing time pretty much eliminates any appeal Callaspo had in deeper NL-only leagues for now. Regardless of who opens the year at second, there's a good chance they'll be supplanted by Jose Peraza at some point.

Callaspo has agreed to a deal with the Braves, pending a physical, MLB Network Radio reports.

Coming off of a very disappointing 2014 campaign with the A's, Callaspo will offer the Braves depth around the infield -- particularly at second base, where a combination of Phil Gosselin and Jose Peraza were previously positioned to handle the bulk of the playing time. As the roster is presently constructed, Callaspo may emerge to be the Braves' starting second baseman on Opening Day, but his hold on that job would likely be tenuous.

Callaspo is out of the lineup Monday against the Mariners.

Callaspo is in a 1-for-27 slump at the plate over the past seven games, and will take a seat Monday with the return of Jed Lowrie to short and Eric Sogard shifting to second base.

Callaspo is out of the lineup Monday vs. the Royals,'s Jane Lee reports.

Callaspo probably tops the depth chart at second base in Oakland, but he's still stuck with Eric Sogard in what mostly amounts to a timeshare at the position. The 31-year-old probably has a more impressive offensive track record than Sogard, but his .231/.302/.297 batting line on the season doesn't really confer him an advantage.
