The Atlanta Braves acquired infielder Micah Johnson from the Los Angeles Dodgers today in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations. The Braves' 40-man roster now stands at 39 with Johnson's addition.
Johnson, 26, split last season between Los Angeles and the organization's Triple-A club at Oklahoma City. The 6-foot-0, 210-pound native of Indianapolis, Ind., appeared in seven games with the Dodgers, collecting one hit in six at-bats. He spent the remainder of the season at Triple-A, hitting .261 (121-for-464) with five home runs, 37 RBI and 26 stolen bases in 120 games.
Originally drafted out of Indiana University in the ninth round of the 2012 First-Year Player by Chicago (AL), Johnson made his MLB debut in 2015 with the White Sox. He appeared in 36 games that season and for his career, he has hit .230 (23-for-100) in 43 games at the major league level. In 505 minor league games, he is a .292 hitter (588-for-2,016).
