Elliot Johnson staying in major leagues

Former Biscuits infielder Elliot Johnson has made the Tampa Bay Rays as a utility infielder. Johnson played for the Biscuits in 2005 and 2006.

Johnson struggled at Triple-A Durham last year and was a considerable longshot to make the Rays when spring training started. He turned into one of the team's top bats, showed he had the versatility to play shortstop, third base and outfield, and now will be with the Rays for Monday's season opener in Baltimore.
