Braves 3B Chris Johnson to play at 1B when Freeman needs rest
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Thursday third baseman Chris Johnson would move over to first base during the regular season on the days he wants to rest first baseman Freddie Freeman, particularly against a tough left-handed pitcher.

“Chris Johnson will be that guy, and you’re going to see him play some first base in spring training,” Gonzalez said, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “He took some ground balls there the last couple of years, and ended up moving over there in that one game (last season) where Freddie got thrown out. I’m not going to carry a guy (just to) be a backup (to Freeman).

“CJ can do it. And depending on the makeup of the club, Kelly Johnson is a guy who can do it, too. But he’s (another left-handed) hitter, so if you want to give Freeman a day off against a tough left-hander you don’t want to run Kelly Johnson in there. You could run CJ in there and utilize him that way.”

Braves 3B Chris Johnson trying to revert to 2013 approach at plate
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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

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.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

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

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.
