The Reds have claimed INF/OF Micah Johnson off waivers from the #Braves.— Atlanta Braves (@Braves) October 26, 2017
The Braves acquired Johnson this past January in a trade with Los Angeles. He suffered a wrist injury during spring training that sidelined him until July. He hit .289/.377/.400 in 40 games at Gwinnett and was part of Atlanta’s September promotions but was never able to carve out much of an opportunity.
The Braves have begun clearing spots on their 40-man roster. Reliever Ian Krol opted for free agency after being dropped from the 40-man roster. The team outrighted catcher Tony Sanchez to Gwinnett earlier this week.
