Cold9/6/2014 11:48:00 AM
Description: Braves third baseman Chris Johnson is hitless in 12 at-bats against Miami right-hander Nathan Eovaldi.
Insight: Johnson is also hitless in his last five games, so avoid him at all costs. For the season he's batting .266, significantly down from last season when he batted .321.
 
8/28/2014 9:54:00 PM
Description: Braves third baseman Chris Johnson was 2-for-4 on Thursday against the Mets.
Insight: It was a nice game for the third baseman but still no runs or RBI. Johnson has not driven in a run or scored in his last five games.
 
8/27/2014 1:20:00 PM
Description: Braves third baseman Chris Johnson is a 2-for-17 (.118) career hitter against Mets starter Zack Wheeler.

8/22/2014 11:09:00 AM
Description: Braves third baseman Chris Johnson is a 7-for-17 (.412) career hitter against Reds starter Mat Latos.
Insight: Justin Upton and Freddie Freeman also hit over .400 in their careers against Latos, so it could be a high scoring night for Atlanta. Jason Heyward also has a career average of .400 (4-for-10) against Latos. Any of them would be great starts. Johnson is hitting .274 with nine home runs and 53 RBI this season.
 
Hot7/20/2014 7:29:00 PM
Description: Braves third baseman Chris Johnson hit his fourth home run in the past five games Sunday against the Phillies.

7/12/2014 7:30:00 PM
Description: Braves third baseman Chris Johnson has been a disappointment for most of the season, but not Saturday.
Insight: Johnson blasted two home runs and knocked in four. Unfortunately, he's still batting just .272, a far cry from last season when he posted a .321 batting average.
 
6/11/2014 9:40:00 AM
Description: Braves third baseman Chris Johnson has gone 6-for-9 in his last two games.
Insight: Johnson is still hitting just .267 with two homers, 16 RBI, 13 runs and a .622 OPS. He batted .321 last year but that was boosted by a .394 BABIP. He's hit .339 on balls in play this year and his strikeout rate is up from 21.2 percent to 24.6 percent. You can probably do better at third base in your fantasy league.
 
5/23/2014 8:59:00 PM
Description: Braves third baseman Chris Johnson was pulled in the third inning Friday against Colorado.
Insight: According to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, manager Fredi Gonzalez will address his decision to remove Johnson after the game. Johnson (.265, 1 HR, 9 RBI) struck out in his only at bat of the night.
 
Cold5/22/2014 10:18:00 AM
Description: Atlanta 3B Chris Johnson is 5-for-9 with a pair of homers versus Milwaukee starter Matt Garza.
Insight: The .321 batting average and .800 plus OPS is a distant memory as he's batting just .255 with no power. We're not sure he can take advantage of this favorable matchup.
 
Cold5/21/2014 1:08:00 PM
Description: Atlanta 3B Chris Johnson hasn't fared well against Milwaukee starter Kyle Lohse.
Insight: He's 2-for-16 against him with 2 K's. Johnson is just one for his last 17, dropping his average all the way down to .261. With Lohse throwing for the Brew Crew on Wednesday, Johnson's slump is only going to get worse.
 
5/19/2014 10:50:00 PM

Insight: Johnson started off May 20-for-53 (.378) after hitting .230 in April, but his season average is back down to .261. The third baseman hit .321 last year, but it was supported by an insane .394 BABIP.
 
5/2/2014 3:57:00 PM
Description: Chris Johnson's new three-year extension is worth $23.5 million. SOURCE: ESPN
Insight: Johnson joins Freddie Freeman, Andrelton Simmons, Julio Teheran, Jason Heyward and Craig Kimbrel among the players that have signed extensions with Atlanta in the last couple months. Clearly, the Braves are in this thing for the long haul. Johnson has underperformed this season (.255, 1 HR, 4 RBI) but he did have three hits in last night's loss to Miami.

Insight: Johnson hasn't done much this season (.255, 1 HR, 4 RBI) but he's coming off an excellent 2013 campaign (.321, 12 HR, 68 RBI in 142 games). Obviously, it's only May and Johnson still has plenty of time to turn things around. He turns 30 in October.
 
4/29/2014 3:52:00 PM
