Braves 3B Chris Johnson trying to revert to 2013 approach at plate

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/5/15) After competing for an NL batting title in 2013, Braves third baseman Chris Johnson could never settle into an offensive rhythm and struggled offensively for most of the 2014 season.

"I think I just tried to do too much [last year]," Johnson said, per MLB.com. "I think I was really worried about forcing my numbers back to where they were in 2013. Right now, I'm just focused on the process. I'm focused on getting my swing right, getting my path right and working on this new approach that [Braves hitting coach Kevin] Seitzer has us working on right now."

Johnson said he is on the same page with Seitzer about what they want to accomplish in 2015.

"It's a simple approach," Johnson said. "He likes to stay up the middle, stay the other way and take what the pitcher gives you. When you get two strikes, he just wants you to battle your butt off. I'm pretty excited. It's definitely an approach that I like. When I had those good numbers in 2013, I had that approach. I think I realized last year, I should be what I was in 2013 and not anything more."

Braves' Fredi Gonzalez begins to ponder options at cleanup spot

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/5/15) Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said he is leaning toward batting Jonny Gomes or Chris Johnson cleanup against left-handed starters, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He might even move Freddie Freeman to fourth against right-handed starters, but Gonzalez is not sure yet if that will happen.

Justin Upton, who was traded to San Diego in the offseason, started a team-high 120 games as the Braves' cleanup hitter in 2014. Johnson made 17 starts in the cleanup spot last season.

As a team, the Braves hit .255 with a .444 slugging percentage, .763 OPS, 25 home runs, 37 doubles and a team-best 102 RBI out of the fourth spot in the lineup last season.

Giants' bid to acquire Justin Upton and Chris Johnson is dead

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/9/14) The Giants won't be acquiring Braves outfielder Justin Upton and third baseman Chris Johnson in a deal for prospects, reports CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Those talks are "a week old" and the deal is "not happening," Heyman reported.

USA Today reported the Braves were skeptical the Giants could supply the necessary prospects to make a deal possible.

Braves' Chris Johnson could be in platoon at 3B next season

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/11/14) The Braves would like to add a left-handed hitter this offseason that they can possibly platoon with third baseman Chris Johnson, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Johnson hit .263 in 2014, but he hit .395 against lefties and just .231 against righties.

Chris Johnson back in starting lineup Friday

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/26/14) Braves third baseman Chris Johnson returned to the starting lineup Friday night against the Phillies, after sitting out Thursday with a back issue. The Braves slotted Johnson seventh in the batting order against Jerome Williams.

Johnson has six hits, including two doubles over his last 18 at-bats. He is hitting .265 with nine homers and 56 RBI over 570 at-bats this season.
