ATLANTA (AP) - Chris Johnson is taking the same approach to the 2014 season he used one year ago, when he was fighting for a starting job.

Don't try telling Johnson he's a lock to start at third base for the Atlanta Braves after finishing second in the National League in hitting in 2013. Johnson is determined to work even harder this offseason to prove he deserves the job.

He was back at Turner Field on Friday, just as he has been every day of the informal pitchers' camp the last two weeks.

As workers loaded boxes of equipment from the Braves clubhouse on a truck headed to spring training, Johnson talked about his efforts this offseason to add muscle, lower his body fat and improve his quickness on defense.
