2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Gosselin broke out at Triple-A Gwinnett last season, slashing .344/.379/.487 with five homers and six steals in 96 games, earning a promotion to the big club shortly after the All-Star break. He was used sparingly at first, but as he continued to hit in a limited role and Tommy La Stella continued to struggle, the decision was made to give Gosselin an audition in the starting role in September. While Gosselin failed to do much with the extending playing time, notching just three extra-base hits in the month, it looks like he may get an opportunity to start at second base to begin 2015, with La Stella since shipped to the Cubs. The 26-year-old Gosselin will likely prove little more than a placeholder for 20-year-old Jose Peraza, who's considered by many to be the long-term solution at second base for the Braves, and Gosselin's lack of a track record at the major league level will put him outside of fantasy consideration outside the deepest of leagues come draft day.
