|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|

Tigers expected to add Jim Johnson to majors soon
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(8/14/14) Tigers reliever Jim Johnson is expected to be brought to the majors quickly, reports MLB.com Thursday.
Johnson, who is pitching at Triple-A Toledo after signing a minor-league contract with the Tigers, was a candidate to fill a recent bullpen opening. However, manager Brad Ausmus told reporters Johnson wanted to make at least one more appearance at Toledo before he gets the call.
Johnson has appeared in three games at Toledo since signing, allowing one earned run while striking out one batter and walking one in 3 2/3 innings of work.
Report: Tigers adding Jim Johnson on minor-league deal
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(8/5/14) The Tigers have signed recently released reliever Jim Johnson to a minor-league deal, FOXSports.com reports Tuesday.
The Athletics let Johnson go after he posted a 7.14 ERA in 40 1/3 innings. He has 28 strikeouts and 23 walks overall and only two saves, just one season removed from consecutive 50-save seasons.
Jim Johnson to throw for Orioles Monday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(8/3/14) Free-agent pitcher Jim Johnson is scheduled to throw a side session for the Orioles Monday, the Baltimore Sun reports.
Released by the A's Friday, Johnson was expected to serve as the closer in Oakland before enduring choppy waters this season. He posted a 6.92 ERA and 28:23 K:BB ratio in 40 1/3 innings before the move.
Jim Johnson let go by Athletics
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/1/14) Just one year removed from a 50-save season, right-hander Jim Johnson has been released by the Athletics.
Johnson opened the season as their closer, but struggled mightily and finished his stint with the team with a 6.92 ERA and 60 hits and 23 walks allowed in 40 1/3 innings. He had been designated for assignment last week.
|Jim Johnson has a whopping 101 saves over his last two seasons, carrying a 2.72 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in that span. He does not get a lot of strikeouts, but with the lowered amount of innings closers pitch anyway, that's really almost negligible, considering the context of a full pitching staff (still, Johnson's 56 strikeouts in 2013 were two more than Mariano Rivera, five more than Rafael Soriano, and just two fewer than Sergio Romo). A move to Oakland shouldn't hurt his value much -- the situations may not be as plentiful, but the A's should play in a fair share of close games. Johnson seemed close to being replaced, at least temporarily, during a rough stretch last year, but his bumps weren't necessarily worse than the majority of other closers. Johnson should emerge as a top 10 closer in 2014, and can be taken in the middle rounds of most drafts.
