Braves signed P Jim Johnson to a one-year deal.
After saving 50-plus games two consecutive years in Baltimore, Johnson has been a shell of that the past two seasons. He only has 12 saves combined over the past two seasons. He posted a 7.09 ERA in 2014 and a 4.46 ERA in 2015. The Braves are giving him one year to figure himself out or he'll likely have a hard time finding work. He can only hope his sinker starts sinking like it did in Baltimore. Analysis: James Grande
