Johnson, 26, was first claimed off waivers by the Reds from the Braves on October 26. On October 30, the Giants claimed him from the Reds. Now, nearly a month later, he’s been claimed by a third team. Such is the life of a fringe major leaguer.
Across parts of three seasons with the White Sox, Dodgers, and Braves, Johnson has hit .224/.291/.259 in 131 plate appearances. He has added the outfield to his defensive repertoire, so whatever team he ultimately sticks with may choose to use him in a utility role.
