Braves signed RHP Jim Johnson to a one-year contract.
It's a major league deal, though terms have not yet been announced. A source told ESPN's Jerry Crasnick that the base salary would be $1.6 million, with a possible $900,000 in performance bonuses. As recently as last June, Johnson was considered a legitimate closing option for the A's. His season unraveled for him and he was never able to find traction, ending the year with a 7.09 ERA between the A's and the Tigers. He'll look to regain his form with the Braves. In 2012 and 2013 he recorded back-to-back seasons with 50+ saves, though the Braves are loaded with relief pitchers and Johnson probably won't be seeing many save chances in 2015.
