Braves sign reliever Jim Johnson to one-year contract
In 72 total appearances in 2015, Johnson registered a 4.46 ERA with 50 strikeouts and 20 walks in 66 2/3 innings. He was left off the Dodgers’ postseason roster after a shaky finish to the regular season.
Johnson led the majors in saves in 2012 and 2013 while with the Baltimore Orioles, but also blew nine saves in 2013, including a streak of three straight in August.
A fifth round selection by the Orioles in the 2001 draft, Johnson was an All Star and the winner of the Rolaids Relief Man Award in 2012.
