Johnson Serving Utility Role in Columbus with Eye Toward Bigs

Since his call-down in May, Elliot Johnson has continued to bring versatility, consistency and veteran experience to the Clippers lineup in more ways than the average player on the roster. Johnson was signed by the Cleveland Indians as a free agent in January after spending the first part of the 2013 season with the Kansas City Royals and he was claimed off the waivers by the Atlanta...

Elliot Johnson Thinks He’s A NASCAR Driver In Post-Game Interview

That was quite an impressive performance by Braves second baseman Elliot Johnson.  Johnson thanked the pit crew and his sponsors in the wake of his legging out a triple.  The only thing he left out was “the car ran well.”  I thought that was a staple of NASCAR interviews. According to Tim Kurkjian, Johnson is the first player to hit a triple in his first at-bat in inter-league...

Braves claim utility infielder Johnson off waivers

The Braves have added some depth to their thin infield, claiming utility man Elliot Johnson on release waivers from the Royals. Primarily a shortstop and second baseman, Johnson is hitting .179.218.241 and has 14 steals in 14 attempts. But he was hitless in his last 31 at-bats before Kansas City designated him for assignment on Aug. 15 to clear space for infielder Emilio Bonifacio...

Elliot Johnson seizing job at 2nd Base

by John Viril— All season long, the Kansas City Royals have struggled to get production at 2nd base. Chris Getz opened the season as the starter and proceeded to hit .212/.273/.288 for a miserable .561 OPS. 38-year-old utility player Miguel Tejada has performed well in limited duty (.310/.355/.448), but manager Ned Yost wisely does not wish to over-expose him. Enter fellow utility...

Johnson takes up offer, makes fan's day

Getting a baseball player to autograph a baseball or T-shirt has always been among the most common sights at a game. Getting a baseball player to respond to a tweeted invitation to come out of the clubhouse and play a little game of pre-game catch in the parking lot? That's taking it a step further. But that's what Tampa Bay Rays utility infielder Elliot Johnson did on...
