Braves third baseman Chris Johnson making adjustments at the plate
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Braves third baseman Chris Johnson needed to make some slight adjustments to his swing at the plate to get things on the right track, reports MLB.com. Johnson, who struggled early in camp with a 4 for 30 stretch, has now hit two home runs in the last four days.

"It was not easy during the first couple weeks of games," said Johnson. "I struggled, and it was hard for me mentally. I'm a results-oriented kind of guy. So, it was tough for me. Being able to stick with it and then see results is a lot of fun."

After he realized he needed to lower his hands at the plate, Johnson improved his reaction time and is able to pull the ball better.

"Pulling the ball is good for me because the book on me is to pitch me [inside] and not allow me to go to right field," Johnson said. "The new approach and [placement of my hands] is allowing me to get [opposing pitchers] out of there. Then when they go [outside], I'll be able to do what I want to do."

Braves' Shelby Miller tosses six one-hit innings Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Braves pitcher Shelby Miller allowed one earned run on just one hit and one walk in six innings while striking out four in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Pirates.

Miller's longest outing of the spring was also his best, though he was unable to turn in his first spring performance with no walks. He has posted a 3.44 ERA and 14:7 K:BB ratio in 18 1/3 innings.

"When you get close to the season, you want to start feeling good, and right now, I feel like I'm right where I need to be physically," Miller said. "I've still got some things to work on, but I feel really good," Miller said to MLB.com.

Joe Benson has good chance to make Braves' roster
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said that outfielder Joe Benson has a good shot to make the team's Opening Day roster. 

Gonzalez praised Benson's "energy and passion", per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"We are looking for a right-handed outfielder that can play a little bit of center, and he comes over and he keeps doing something good," Gonzalez said. “I got on the phone yesterday with (assistant GM John Coppolella) and said 'I’d like to see Benson more.' It doesn’t cost us anything, and you can bring him back and forth anytime we want. So Benson’s here and we get a chance to play him."

Brady Feigl 'in the mix' to make Braves' roster
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said that LHP Brady Feigl has a good chance to make the roster. 

Feigl has a 1.35 ERA in seven appearances this spring. He was sent to minor league camp but has been brought back up to make three starts. 

"We send them down for whatever reason," Gonzalez said, per the Journal-Constitution. "And then the (Braves coaches) are going, ‘Wait a second, I remember Feigl, when he was here, he pitched better than the guy who is here. Let’s bring him (back)."

Feigl has never appeared above Single-A, but Gonzalez said he was "in the mix" to win a job.
