Braves Making the Team Meter 2010: Hitters, Week 3

Making the Team Meter for the Atlanta Braves hitters for week 3 of spring training shows us what the hitters have done the first two weeks of spring games. Go here for week 2 of the hitters MTM. I'll be taking some people off the list this week. I've removed Clint Sammons, Jordan Schafer, Freddie Freeman, and Cody Johnson, as they may still be on the spring roster, but barring injury they're not likely to make the team.

Player, Position This Week's Trend Last Week Notes and Comments
Brooks Conrad, 2B
He is still swinging a hot bat and helping his cause by playing second and third. His main competition, Thurston, is also having a good spring. This battle could go down to the wire.
Gregor Blanco, OF
He has been largely unimpressive this spring. He's still way down there on the depth chart.
Brandon Hicks, SS
He doesn't have many hits, but he's impressed a lot of people in camp. He's probably nowhere near making the team, but he can certainly help his future prospects for making the Majors with a good showing this spring.
Joe Thurston, 2B
In the same boat with Conrad, and there's only room for one. Thurston is at a bit of a disadvantage because he's not on the 40-man, but he does have more experience as a pinch hitter and utility player than Conrad, and that could give him an edge.
Brent Clevlen, OF
He's getting a lot of playing time, but he's not doing much with it. We'll change him to going back down this week.
Jason Heyward, OF
Poser.
Mitch Jones, OF
He had a big homerun the other day, but that's his only hit this spring. He needs to show everyone that he's not a one-dimensional player.
Matt Young, OF
He's got as many hits as M. Jones and Blanco combined in far fewer at-bats. I'm still rooting for him, and we'll keep him here to see what happens.
Arrow Key:
= Chance of making the team is waffling or 50-50.
= Chance of making the team is trending down.
= Chance of making the team is trending up.
