Micah Johnson (wrist) has increased the intensity of his batting-cage sessions and is nearing a rehab assignment.

"I watched him in the cage and he was turning it loose," Braves manager Brian Snitker said. Johnson, who is coming back from March wrist surgery, will soon take live batting practice and play in intrasquad games at the team's spring training complex. He hopes to contribute in the second half.

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.
Mar 16 - 2:38 PM

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.
Feb 27 - 4:33 PM

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.
