Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution writes that Eric Young Jr. "appears to have the edge" in center field while Melvin Upton (foot) is out.
Even though Young is a poor defensive outfielder, it's not a surprise that he's leading the competition given his level of experience. He could even hit leadoff for the Braves for a while, giving him ample fantasy value with his ability on the basepaths. Eury Perez was optioned to Triple-A Friday, giving Young and even tighter grip on the job. Mar 27 - 9:05 AM
