Description: Atlanta Braves backup outfielder Reed Johnson has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with left Achilles tendinitis.
Insight: Johnson (.263) is a career backup with no power or speed therefore this injury shouldn't change any fantasy lineups.

Description: Atlanta Braves backup outfielder Reed Johnson should get a start when Jon Garland is on the hill for the Rockies in the first game of a doubleheader as he's a career .615 hitter (8-for-13) in their matchups.
Insight: Johnson (.125) is likely to start with Jason Heyward sidelined due to appendectomy surgery on Monday.

Description: The Atlanta Braves announced on the team's Twitter page that Reed Johnson has agreed to a new one-year deal.
Insight: Johnson hits for a high average but he's just a utility player. We don't envision him cracking 300 at bats next season.

Description: Cubs outfielder Reed Johnson is likely one of the few hitters who enjoys seeing Johan Santana take the hill. He's a career .520 hitter (13-for-25) against the Mets lefty with a 1.316 OPS.
Insight: Johnson doesn't play everyday, but if you see his name in the Cubs lineup, put him in yours.

Description: The Mets have some interest in Reed Johnson as a bench OF. SOURCE: ANDY MARTINO
Insight: Johnson would be a nice spark for the Mets off the bench since he is one of the tougher players in baseball. However, his fantasy value will be minimal wherever he goes.

Description: Johnson had a big day for the Cubs. He went 3-for-3 with his third homer of the season.
Insight: Johnson is hitting .270. He doesn't play every day so he is probably not worth much mixed league attention, but NL-only owners should take note of his decent play. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Johnson could platoon with Kosuke Fukudome, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Insight: This is the role that Johnson played last year in a platoon with Jim Edmonds. He hit .303 and .333 against lefties. With Fukudome having something to prove just to get playing time, Johnson could grab the every day starting role and be a decent fantasy outfielder. (SportsBuff.com)
