Players You Should Know: Kelly Johnson

posted by Jon Williams

Kelly Johnson isn't that obscure a player if you follow the minor leagues or at least team's top ten prospects. But Johnson was at one point considered among the Braves best prospects and to this point he has done nothing to be dismissed a good major league possibility. Johnson missed 2006 due to a serious elbow injury but has rehabbed well and is the leading candidate to replace Marcus Giles at second base for the Atlanta Braves. At your draft or auction it is likely he will qualify only in the outfield.

Kelly Johnson is a potential 25 homer/10 stolen base player similar to Chase Utley in a lot of ways. You will get him cheaply this season if you try and I think you will be very happy with the results.

Check out his career stats at the Baseball Cube.

While I think comparisons to Utley are a bit premature, Johnson was a good looking young player before his injury, even winning NL Player of the week once in 2005. He could be a potential fantasy steal. Is it me or are most blogs either fantasy sports or porn?
