Kelly Johnson could sign with Braves

Kelly Johnson began last season with the Braves and was traded midseason. Such a scenario could happen again this season.

Both David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Mark Bowman of MLB.com hae stated that the Braves and Johnson were in contract talks.

Last season Johnson began the season with the Braves and was traded to the Mets. He went on to hit .265/.314/.435 with 14 home runs between the two teams while playing six different positions.

Given that the Braves lack talent across the diamond there is a good chance the now 33-year-old could see regular playing time. If Johnson produces he could then be flipped at the trade deadline again in 2016.

Dan Uggal drawling interest

Another former member of the Braves, Dan Uggla, is drawling interest from three or four teams.

Uggla, 35, spent last season with the Nationals but produced just a .183/.298./.300 line which included just two home runs in 141 trips to the plate.

Chris Cotillo of SB Nation says Uggla does have sutiors but offers up little more. More than likely Uggla will have to settle for a minor league deal and scrap for at-bats. He very well could be at the end of his playing days.
