RotoWire News: Johnson has heard from the Reds, Braves and Blue Jays about a non-roster deal, but he's waiting on a major league contract, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports. (3/18/2017)

Profile: After witnessing first hand how Daniel Murphy transformed into a power hitter, Kelly Johnson asked “why not me?” This became all the more easier when, for the second time in two seasons, he was traded from the Braves to the Mets and could continue playing under the tutelage of Kevin Long, a hitting coach that specializes in teaching left-handed batters to pull for power. Johnson posted 23.4% and 18.4% home run-to-fly ball rates for the Mets in 2015 and 2016 respectively. While neither of these figures are career highs, they represent significant jumps in performance relative to his time with other teams in recent years - and he has spent a lot of time with other teams, having played for six organizations in the past four years. (Andrew Perpetua)

The Quick Opinion: He’s an aging backup infielder, but he is focusing on recognizing pitches he can pull in the air, so you might see a late-career bump in home runs.
