Chris Johnson, Braves Third Baseman, Calls ‘Uncle’ on Long Spring Training


Apparently Chris Johnson is tired of spring training.

After nearly a month and a half of baseball’s preseason, Johnson is finally calling “uncle.”

It’s understandable that the Braves third baseman wants spring ball to end, he’s tearing the cover off the ball, batting .368 with a .923 OPS, three home runs and 11 RBIs. Johnson might want to spend the last week of spring training working on his batting eye, though — he has zero walks.

Johnson has the unenviable task of replacing Chipper Jones at third base this season for the Braves.
