Braves | Chris Johnson turning it on

Atlanta Braves 3B Chris D. Johnson entered play Wednesday, July 3, leading the team in batting average while ranking second in on-base percentage. However, manager Fredi Gonzalez isn't interested in moving him from the eighth spot of the batting order. "It's been good to have him there," Gonzalez said. "I've been tempted to move him up a couple times. But it seems that hole comes up with people on base all the time, or at the very least you get the other manager thinking about whether you walk him."

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has emerged as a must-start in all NL-only fantasy leagues, and with a .330 batting average through 66 games, he is turning heads in mixed play as well, especially rotisserie formats.
