CHRIS JOHNSON RUMORS

Indians’ Chris Johnson to miss games with spider bite

By Darryn Albert Here’s one that will make Tobey Maguire do a double take. Newly acquired Indians infielder Chris Johnson was forced out of the lineup on Saturday and Sunday against the Minnesota Twins. The culprit for Johnson’s sudden absence?

Indians send Michael Bourn, Nick Swisher to Atlanta

by Joe Lucia The Atlanta Braves finally unloaded Chris Johnson and his contract, but it came at a cost – they acquired the ugly contracts of Michael Bourn and Nick Swisher from the Cleveland Indians for him. Atlanta is also getting a yet to be known pile of cash in the trade. This is more a swap of bad contracts than anything else. Swisher is owed the balance of a $15 million...

Braves' Johnson atones for early mistake vs. Red Sox

ATLANTA -- The ball hit off the edge of the grass in front of third and a charging Chris Johnson barehanded it, took two steps and fired to Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman to get the Red Sox's David Ross. "I had to kind of do a do-or-die play right there to get rid of it," Johnson said. "I don't do those plays a lot. But it was pretty cool." It was the first atonement. An inning...

Braves' Johnson focusing on approach to cleanup spot

ATLANTA -- Another atypical part of the Braves' atypical lineup, Chris Johnson paused when trying to remember the last time he was as consistently high in the order. "College," he said, smiling. "College I think I hit third." There's little that fits the blueprint when it comes to having Johnson at the cleanup spot. Last season, nine players hit 20-plus homers in that spot, while...

Johnson neatly fills 3B spot for Braves

Chris Johnson remembers donning his Chipper Jones T-shirt and parking himself in front of the television to watch Atlanta's star third baseman play when he was growing up.

Braves' Chris Johnson not resting on 2013 success

Chris Johnson is taking the same approach to the 2014 season he used one year ago, when he was fighting for a starting job. Don't try telling Johnson he's a lock to start at third base for the Atlanta Braves after finishing second in the National League in hitting in 2013. Johnson is determined to work even harder this offseason to prove he deserves the job. Hard work paid off...
