Braves | Chris Johnson fine with spot in order

Atlanta Braves 3B Chris D. Johnson said Tuesday, July 9, that he doesn't mind batting in the eighth spot of manager Fredi Gonzalez's order. "I don't mind at all, not one bit," Johnson said. "I would never tell the skipper what to do or to be asked to be moved up because the numbers say I deserve to be hitting higher. We've got a lot of good ballplayers on our team, and we're in firstp lace. If we were in last place, maybe you could start shuffling things around."

Fantasy Tip: Johnson entered play Tuesday with a .332 average in tow, ranking fourth in the National League among players with at least 250 plate appearances. He has emerged as a must-start option in all NL-only fantasy leagues, especially rotisserie formats, and he is getting attention in mixed play as well.
