Report: Kelly Johnson will make Braves' Opening Day roster


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Kelly Johnson will make the Braves Opening Day roster, according to a report by Yahoo's Jeff Passan.

Johnson's versatility helped earn him the spot--he can play three infield positions as well as the outfield. The decision to keep Johnson could be a bad sign for Joey Terdoslavich, who was believed to be competing with him for a bench role. 


Braves' Chris Johnson, Kelly Johnson OK after struck by pitches


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Braves infielders Chris Johnson and Kelly Johnson both said they were OK after being hit by pitches Tuesday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Chris Johnson was struck on the hand and had it wrapped as he left the ballpark Wednesday. Kelly Johnson was sore after being hit on the back of his right arm.


Joey Terdoslavich hopes to return to Braves lineup Wednesday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Joey Terdoslavich took batting practice on Tuesday and hopes to return to the field Wednesday, after missing 10 days with a wrist injury. 

Terdoslavich sprained his left wrist while diving to make a tag on March 21. 

"It’s just weird the way it happened, just kind of a freak thing," Terdoslavich said, per the Atlanta Journal Constitution. "But a wrist and hand with a hitter is just like a pitcher with a (sore) elbow or shoulder. You don’t want to have it linger all year."

Terdoslavich is hitting .278 this spring. He's competing with Kelly Johnson for a bench spot on the Braves' roster. 


Braves' Kelly Johnson getting on track offensively


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Kelly Johnson is among the players in Braves' camp this spring fighting for a roster spot. Unfortunately, he didn't help his own cause early on, batting .105 through his first seven spring games, but Johnson has settled into a groove at the plate and has put himself back in the race for a roster spot.

Johnson has hit safely in five straight spring games, batting .462 (6 for 13) with one home run, four RBI, two doubles and four walks in that span. Johnson attributes his work with hitting coach Kevin Seitzer for his turnaround.

“I feel better,” Johnson said. “It’s spring training. I’ve gone both ways before -- I’ve gone out and hit .400 for the first two weeks and not really had a clue how you’re doing it, but you’re getting hits. So there’s that. But Seitz has been really good for me. It’s been a lot of work to get back feeling good…. The approach, that’s been really good for me."
