Chris Johnson and Juan Francisco have been waging war all spring for the right to be the everyday third baseman for the Atlanta Braves.
As of right now, it might still be too close to call.
We are seriously talking neck and neck here. Johnson has a .347 batting average with three home runs and nine RBI, while Francisco is hitting .353 with five home runs and 11 RBI.
Apparently, it's been very enjoyable for manager Fredi Gonzalez to watch, even though he must make a tough decision.
"They've both been great," Gonzalez told Steve Dorsey of MLB.com. "They give you good at-bats, they play third base better than average defensively."
Advantage: None right now, and Gonzalez is still open to a possible platoon.
"They're both, to me, on the club," Gonzalez said. "We'll see. I'm open to a platoon situation, but I'm also open to whoever wins it. For me, it's that close. It's not like one's going to go away and we've got to make a decision on [if] one stays and one goes down to the Minor Leagues or whatever."
