Johnson was traded from the Braves to the Angels on Thursday in exchange for minor-league pitcher Justin Kelly.
Johnson spent all of 2017 in the Braves' bullpen, converting 22 of his 31 save opportunities while compiling a 5.56 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 61:28 K:BB in 56.2 innings. He fell out of favor as the team's closer in August and posted an unsightly 9.88 ERA, 2.12 WHIP and 6.6 K/9 over the final two months of the season (13.2 innings), so he likely won't get a shot to immediately reclaim his ninth-inning role with Los Angeles. Still, he should hold a high-leverage role in the Angels' bullpen next season. Nov 30 2:25 pm (EST)
