Gosselin was hitless in his Diamondbacks debut Monday, but he made up for it and then some with a big showing in his second game with the Snakes. His blast off Miguel Castro in the seventh inning went an estimated 441 feet. It looks like Gosselin could get a decent look at second base this month, making him worth a look in NL-only formats.

The move clears a 40-man roster spot for starter Zack Godley, who will make his major league debut on Thursday against the Brewers.

Jul 23 - 2:58 PM

Diamondbacks acquired INF Phil Gosselin from the Braves for RHPs Bronson Arroyo and Touki Toussaint.

Gosselin underwent surgery in mid-May for an avulsion fracture in his left thumb and still has about a month of rehab left. The 26-year-old utility infielder owns a .281/.321/.345 career batting line in 70 games at the major league level and might not have a spot on the Diamondbacks' active roster when his health returns. This trade was all about dumping Bronson Arroyo's salary.

Phil Gosselin had a go-ahead two-run single in a 5-3 win over the Mets on Friday night.

It was Gosselin's lone hit in five at-bats Friday, but he delivered at the right time with a bases-loaded single off Rafael Montero with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning. He also stole a base in the frame. While Gosselin made the start at second base Friday, Jace Peterson appears to be the preferred option at the position. Gosselin is not going to be fantasy relevant on the bench.
Apr 11 - 12:29 AM

Phil Gosselin went 0-for-4 while seeing time in left field, at third base and at first base in Saturday's game against the Cardinals.

Gosselin is known as a second baseman, but he's spent most of the spring playing third, short and the outfield as he attempts to make the Braves as a utilityman. He's hitting .216 with no extra-base hits in 37 at-bats, so that's not helping.

Phil Gosselin went 3-for-4 and scored a run in Wednesday's victory against the Nationals.

Gosselin was the only Brave to register multiple hits on the evening. He has multiple hits in three out of his last four ballgames, in fact, and is slashing a respectable .309/.343/.381 in 103 plate appearances this season -- certainly an upgrade over Dan Uggla.

Gosselin has been a tremendous bright spot in the Braves lineup in his limited action, slashing .333/.357/.407 with a homer and two RBI. He's certainly worth utilizing in NL-only formats.
