The Oakland Athletics have released RP Jim Johnson.
While on the surface this may be big news, it's actually been a long time coming. Johnson has been a $10 million disaster this season, posting a 6.92 ERA with a 2.06 WHIP. He'll likely catch on with another team maybe looking for a reclamation project, but his fantasy value is at zero as he's not picking up any save chances or high-leverage situations anytime soon.
