Jim Johnson pitched a scoreless ninth inning to pick up his first save of the season in the Braves' 5-3 defeat of the Mets on Saturday.
Johnson allowed an infield single to Juan Lagares with two outs, but otherwise it was a clean appearance for the veteran right-hander. Jason Grilli is considered the primary closer in Atlanta, but with Craig Kimbrel shipped out of town Johnson's going to see opportunities that he wouldn't have otherwise. He underwent a disastrous 2014, posting a ghastly 7.09 ERA in his time with the A's and Tigers, but Johnson does have multiple 50-save seasons under his belt. Grilli, who was given the night off Saturday, is still the guy to own in the Braves' bullpen. Apr 11 - 11:02 PM
