Elliot Johnson became the final player that came to the KC Royals, along with pitchers James Shields and Wade Davis, from the Tampa Bay Rays. 

Johnson was acquired by the KC Royals as the “player to be named later” of the off-season trade that sent Royals’ top prospect Wil Myers (and others) to TB prior to the 2013 season.

Johnson spent parts of 5 seasons in the majors and last played for Cleveland in 2014.  In 79 games during the 2013 season for the KC Royals, Johnson was utilized by the club as a utility player.

Elliot was kind enough to take time to answer some questions for KoK via Twitter.  You can follow him @ElliotJohnson9
