Johnson (Achilles) tossed 1.2 perfect innings across two appearances Sunday and Monday.
A bout of Achilles tendinitis cost Johnson most of September, but he has recovered in time to make a few appearances before the end of the season. Johnson lost his grip on the closer role shortly after the All-Star break and has failed to get right in lower-leverage spots, posting an 11.12 ERA and 2.03 WHIP since Aug. 1. It's hard to imagine he will get the job back at any point in 2018. Sep 26 1:12 pm (EST)
- Johnson didn't make the trip to Washington due to achilles tendinitis but could be available for this weekend's series against the Mets, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
- Johnson (6-3) took the loss Wednesday while blowing his ninth save of the season, entering the game in the eighth inning and getting tagged for four runs on three hits and a walk while failing to record an out in a 9-6 loss to the Mariners.
- Johnson will share closing duties with Arodys Vizcaino going forward, Michael Cunningham of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "Probably mix and match maybe and see where we are at in the (opposing) lineups and things like that, and give some (other) guys a chance," Braves manager Brian Snitker said after Sunday's game.
