Micah Johnson needs surgery for a fracture in his left wrist.

The initial X-rays turned up negative, but Johnson was sent for an MRI on Wednesday and that exam revealed a broken bone. His recovery timetable is uncertain at this time. It's probably going to be a while. Johnson suffered the fractured left wrist Tuesday while making a diving catch in the outfield during a Grapefruit League game.

Micah Johnson (wrist) will go for more tests.

X-rays came back negative after Johnson rolled his wrist on a diving catch on Tuesday, but the hope is that an MRI will rule out any possible structural damage. There should be more clarity on his status in the next couple of days.
Mar 15 - 12:29 PM

Micah Johnson left Tuesday's Grapefruit League game with a left wrist sprain.

Johnson suffered the injury while making a diving catch in the outfield. It looked concerning, but X-rays came back negative and he's considered day-to-day.
Mar 14 - 3:34 PM's Mark Bowman writes that Micah Johnson "still looks somewhat uncomfortable" in his attempt to transition to the outfield.

Johnson knows his best shot at a bench job is to prove he can be versatile, so he's trying to play the outfield this spring even though his experience there is very limited. The 26-year-old is also hitting just .233/.281/.400 so far this spring, which doesn't help. At the moment, he seems likely to lose out on a roster spot to Emilio Bonifacio.
Mar 12 - 9:39 AM

Micah Johnson singled, walked twice and scored three runs Monday against the Tigers.

Johnson has made both his starts this spring in the outfield, first in center and today in right. He'll need to show that kind of versatility in order to have a chance of making the Braves, but he's still kind of a long shot, especially since his profile is so similar to Jace Peterson's.

Braves acquired 2B Micah Johnson from the Dodgers in exchange for cash or a player to be named later.

Johnson had been designated for assignment. The 26-year-old spent all of last season at Triple-A, hitting .261/.321/.356 in 516 plate appearances. He'll try to win a bench job with Atlanta.
Jan 13 - 3:27 PM

Dodgers designated INF Micah Johnson for assignment.

The move clears a roster spot for Kenley Jansen, who was officially re-signed to a five-year, $80 million contract on Tuesday afternoon. Johnson logged just six plate appearances at the major league level in 2016 and hit .261/.321/.356 in 516 plate appearances with the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate.
Jan 10 - 4:49 PM

Dodgers recalled INF/OF Micah Johnson from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Johnson had a brief stint with the big club back in April and hit .261/.321/.356 with five homers and 26 steals in 120 games this season in Triple-A. He'll provide some bench depth between the infield and outfield.

Dodgers optioned INF/OF Micah Johnson to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The move was made to clear a spot for Howie Kendrick, who is expected to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday. Johnson was just called up on Saturday and went 0-for-3 over two games.

Dodgers recalled INF/OF Micah Johnson from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

He's taking the place of Carl Crawford on the club's active roster. The speedster played in the outfield at Triple-A on Friday and could get a look there with the big league club. If he finds his way into regular playing time, his speed makes him an interesting fantasy commodity.

Dodgers optioned INF Micah Johnson to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Acquired from the White Sox over the winter, Johnson got optioned pretty early despite hitting .345 this spring. He'll be up at some point this season.

Micah Johnson received stitches in his left hand after cutting himself while removing an avocado pit.

The Dodgers expect Johnson to be healed up in about a week. Acquired over the offseason from the White Sox in a deal that sent Todd Frazier to Chicago, Johnson is competing for a backup infielder job.

Dodgers acquired INF Micah Johnson from the White Sox in the three-team Todd Frazier trade.

Johnson essentially replaces Jose Peraza on the Dodgers' depth chart, though he may have less upside. The 24-year-old hit .230 with a .576 OPS over 114 plate appearances with the White Sox this past season, but he has always hit in the minors and possesses excellent speed. He could be a potential platoon-mate at second base depending on how things shake out with the Dodgers this winter.

Micah Johnson underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Thursday.

It was a cleanup procedure to remove some cartilage. The joint was found to be structurally sound and Johnson should be 100 percent when spring training rolls around next February. He was a disappointment at the major league level in 2015, but the speedy 24-year-old infielder still carries some promise from a fantasy perspective.
