Johnson looking to Feliz for mentoring

Chris Johnson knew what the Feliz signing meant for him, and he's saying the right things for The Apparatus:

"I'm not dumb. They got Pedro Feliz. I think it's almost kind of a good thing for me. It kind of gives me some to time to get going and also learn some things from what he does."

"There's no doubt. He's got everything it takes to be a very good third baseman at the major league level."

Remember, Feliz was only brought on for a one-year deal. Johnson almost made the team out of Spring Training in 2009, but in the first week of the season at Round Rock, he was hit in the hand by a pitch, which shelved him and delayed his progress. If Johnson can put together a good, full season in 2010, he should be able to make that transition in 2010.
