Indians | Offense will not be factor for Elliot Johnson

Sun, 09 Mar 2014 19:48:42 -0700

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona said 2B Elliot Johnson's strong offensive performance so far during spring training will not be a factor in whether he will make the roster. "It's really not [that important]," Francona said. "I don't know that if Elliot was 0-for-10, we would view him any different than if he's 3-for-10 or 4-for-10. And when you really think about it, what he's done in his career, what he's capable of doing and how he can benefit our team, is what really makes sense. Guys tend to catch your eye or other peoples' eyes when they get hits." Johnson has gone 6-for-16 with one home run and five RBIs in six spring training games.

Uggla was third in the National League in strikeouts (171), beating his previous career high (168). 2B Elliot Johnson started 11 of the team's final 20 games at second base over Uggla, too.

Braves | Elliot Johnson claimed

Wed, 21 Aug 2013 12:37:41 -0700

The Atlanta Braves claimed 2B Elliot Johnson on waivers from the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson could be used to help fill in at the keystone with Dan Uggla (eye surgery) out, but Johnson shouldn't be an option unless you're desperate in an NL-only league. To give you an idea of his offensive struggles, he was hitless in his last 31 at-bats with the Royals.
