Braves | Chris Johnson out again

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 15:55:50 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Chris D. Johnson is out of the lineup for the second straight day Monday, April 14, but manager Fredi Gonzalez said Johnson will play the rest of the team's four-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies. Johnson went hitless in three of his last four games, including two four-strikeout performances. "He's just fighting himself a little bit right now," hitting coach Greg Walker said. "We're trying to get him to get the fight back between him and the pitcher."

Fantasy Tip: It's concerning when a contact hitter like Johnson starts swinging and missing so much. We knew that Johnson was primed for regression this year, especially with his average, so continue to temper your expectations.
