Bits: Kelly Johnson, Blue Jays hitters

5/13/2013

Two Tampa Bay Rays hitters are featured among the top 10 hitters on ESPN's most added list, but only one of them is intriguing. That's second baseman/outfielder Kelly Johnson, who has fit in well in the team's No. 2 lineup slot while playing mainly left field. Johnson struck out in his lone official at-bat Sunday, but he also drew three walks. Jackpot! Johnson is hitting a cool .275, well above last season's miserable .225 mark with the Toronto Blue Jays, but even then he was contributing valuable power and speed from a middle-infield spot.
