    Braves sign Reed Johnson

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/#lQFCRS3SRsO3ewPj.99

    Johnson obtains a $1.75MM guarantee plus $150K in incentives, Yahoo's Jeff Passan reports (on Twitter). The deal also includes a club option for 2014 with a $1.6MM salary and a $150K buyout. Johnson will earn a base salary of $1.6MM in 2013.
    That's a very good sign for a right handed bat off the bench who can play all OF position. And i really like that option.

    Way cheaper than I thought it was going to be with how much some of the utility guys where getting paid.

    He's basically the perfect 4th OF. And at that price he's well worth it. I love the option... even if we sign a LF and Cunningham is ready to take over as the 4th OF next season, Johnson should have trade value at $1.6 million.

    But Johnson gives us a "worst case scenario" option of Johnson vs LHP and Francisco vs RHP. Francisco did have a .768 OPS against RHP last season. You'd figure that platoon would manage a .750 OPS and potential for an .800+OPS at a cost of $2.25 million.

    Wow, guess he really did want to come back. A very fair price.

    Great move. Something we needed and I feel like he took a discount to stay with us.
