MASN’s Roch Kubatko reports that the Orioles are showing “definite interest” in a reunion with current free agent reliever Jim Johnson. Kubatko says it would be a surprise if the Orioles don’t get a deal done with the right-hander.
Johnson was acquired by the Athletics in a trade with the Orioles last December. His time in Oakland did not go well, as he was given a $10 million salary to avoid arbitration but posted a 7.14 ERA with a 28/23 K/BB ratio in 40 1/3 innings.
As the Orioles’ closer in 2012 and ’13, Johnson led the league in saves with 51 and 50, respectively.
