Report: Braves trying to trade Chris Johnson

As the trade deadline draws nearer, the Atlanta Braves are apparently trying to make a deal that would send third baseman Chris Johnson elsewhere.

FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that the Braves are trying to latch Johnson onto a trade that would likely include another Braves player.

Since Atlanta acquired veteran third baseman Juan Uribe, Johnson has seen less time on the field, primarily due to his offensive struggles.
