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.

Micah Johnson will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Thursday.

Johnson opened the 2015 season as Chicago's starting second baseman, but he was shipped to the minors in May after batting just .270/.333/.297 over his first 83 plate appearances. He also struggled defensively. It's not clear where he'll be on the depth chart in 2016.

White Sox recalled INF Micah Johnson from Triple-A Charlotte.

Johnson won Chicago's starting second base job out of spring training, but he was demoted in May after batting .270/.333/.297 over 83 plate appearances while struggling defensively. His speed could come in handy for fantasy owners, but it's unclear how playing time will shake out over the final month of the season.

White Sox 2B prospect Michah Johnson launched two homers Sunday in a blowout win for Triple-A Charlotte.

Johnson is heating up. He's hit .421 over his last nine games with eight RBI, raising his average 54 points in that stretch. Johnson couldn't cut it at the major league level this season but getting demoted isn't a life sentence. It might not happen right away, but the 24-year-old is bound to get another chance with the White Sox.

White Sox optioned 2B Micah Johnson to Triple-A Charlotte.

Johnson won Chicago's Opening Day second base gig with a big spring, but he went on to bat just .270/.333/.297 over his first 83 regular-season plate appearances while struggling defensively. Carlos Sanchez is expected to join the White Sox on Friday and will presumably split time at second with Emilio Bonifacio. Johnson entered 2015 as a fantasy sleeper because of his speed, but he might not be back up for a while.

Micah Johnson had an RBI single and a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

Johnson delivered a run-scoring single in the fifth inning to give the White Sox a lead. He stole his third base of the season as well. Johnson has been up and down in his first year with the club, batting .270/.333/.297 with eight runs scored as the everyday second baseman.

Micah Johnson went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Friday against the Twins.

Johnson got his first career start out of the leadoff spot Friday with Adam Eaton sidelined due to illness. He'll presumably move back down to his standard ninth spot in the order if Eaton is good to go Saturday. Johnson has been pretty quiet in the early going, batting .250 (13-for-52) with zero RBI, four runs scored, and two stolen bases.
