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.
