Latest Update Chris Johnson is not in the Braves starting lineup on Saturday. Sat Sep, 13, 11:17 AM
Possesses good power in his swing and will drive in his share of runs. Can also hit for a good batting average. Is a decent glove at the hot corner.
Flaws: : Can get fooled by off-speed stuff and doesn't walk nearly enough. Can be prone to making too many errors at the hot corner. Lacks speed on the basepaths.
Johnson is just 3-for-32 (.094) for the month of September and is a career 0-for-12 against Marlins starter Nathan Eovaldi. He'll take a seat in favor of Phil Gosselin on Saturday.Analyst: Howard Bender
This is based on his 0-for-12 career numbers against Saturday's starter, Nate Eovaldi. Phil Gosselin will step in to man the hot corner Saturday, but expect Johnson to be the primary starter at third for the rest of the season.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
After 24-straight games, Johnson is due for a day of rest. He's not a power or speed guy and his .271 average is no where near his numbers last season, but he's stable and he will continue to be a regular in the Braves lineup the rest of the way. Phil Gosselin is replacing him at third base.Analyst: Howard Bender
Johnson is now riding a seven game hit streak while hitting .320 with two extra-base hits and three RBI over his last seven games. Although there is nothing flashy about his fantasy output, when in need of solid power source Johnson could be the right ticket as he is now sitting on a .276 average with nine home runs and 52 RBI on the year.
