Former Yankees Update: Kelly Johnson

Somehow I (purposely) missed this little bit of news Wednesday regarding a former member of the New York Yankees. Kelly Johnson signed a minor league deal with the Atlanta Braves continuing the mass exodus of former Yankees players to Atlanta. The 33 year old Johnson received an invite to spring training and will compete for a roster spot as a utility player.

Johnson began his career with the Braves after making his major league debut there back in 2005 where he stayed through the 2009 season. Johnson played for the Yankees, Orioles and Red Sox in 2014 playing second base, third base, first base and the outfield. Combined Johnson accumulated a .215 average with seven home runs and 27 RBI in 2014 in his three stops.
