Reed Johnson is a free agent after the Braves declined his $1.6 million option for 2014, paying him a $150,000 buyout instead.

Johnson was useful in a part-time role, but then missed most of the second half with an Achilles’ tendon injury. He finished hitting .244 with one homer and a .653 OPS in 136 plate appearances and at age 37 he may struggle to find regular work, but Johnson has long been very productive versus left-handed pitching and can play all three outfield spots (if healthy).

    This dude always kills the mets. I don’t know why, but he always seems to go 3 for 4 with a double or something.

    Potential 4th outfielder if the jays are unable to resign Davis.

    He needs to go to Arizona… he just oozes grit.

    Good first move by the braves. Time to shed some dead weight. Just wish they could find someone dumb enough to take BJ Upton.
