Apparently the Braves decided not to designate Micah Johnson for assignment after all
The Braves now say Micah Johnson was not DFA'd. They had talked about it, but didn't need to because they have a spot on their 40-man— Mark Bowman (@mlbbowman) September 1, 2017
Atlanta has reinstated relievers Luke Jackson and Ian Krol from the 10-day disabled list. The team has also recalled pitchers Rex Brothers and Max Fried from Gwinnett along with infielder Rio Ruiz.
The team also selected the contract of catcher Tony Sanchez who was acquired in Thursday’s trade with the Angels involving Brandon Phillips.
The team also cleared a spot on the 40-man roster by designating utility man Micah Johnson for assignment.
