Johnson welcomes addition to family roster
CHICAGO -- Cubs outfielder Reed Johnson didn't get much sleep Tuesday night. When he got home after the night game, his wife, Taryn, was having contractions 10 minutes apart. At 2 a.m. Wednesday, they went to the hospital and five hours later, they welcomed the arrival of Jordan Elizabeth. It's their second child; she joins big brother Tyce.

"I was glad I was in town for it," Johnson said Thursday, still a little bleary eyed from lack of sleep. "Tyce loves her. He's like, 'Not real? Pretend?' He thought she was a doll."

Johnson was awake enough to start Thursday in center field in the Cubs series finale against the Brewers.
