Johnson got his first start Wednesday since before the All-Star break and did not disappoint, going 4-for-4 with four singles in a loss to the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson has primarily been used off the bench of late, but made the case for more playing time with his big day at the plate. The big day raises Johnson's batting average to .256 on the season.

Johnson went 1-for-1 with a solo homer Saturday at the Braves.

Johnson is in the lineup for Friday's game against Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson will be playing third base and batting sixth in the order due to Wilmer Flores' wrist injury. The veteran has gone 8-for-20 with one home run and two RBI for the Mets since being dealt to the team on June 8.

Johnson went 3-for-5 with a homer, two RBI and two runs in Wednesday's 11-2 rout of the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

In five games since being traded from the Braves to the Mets for the second consecutive season, Johnson's gone 7-for-17 with three extra-base hits and a couple walks -- not a bad start after he hit just .215 in 49 games with the Braves to open the season. He should find his way into the lineup reasonably often against right-handed pitching, but don't expect big things from the 34-year-old Johnson.

Johnson was added to Wednesday's lineup to replace Juan Lagares who was scratched with a left thumb injury, Adam Rubin of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lagares continues to struggle with his thumb injury, and Johnson will step into left field for the night while Yoenis Cespedes shifts back to his usual center field role. Johnson is hitting .333 with two doubles and two runs in four games since being traded to the Mets.

Johnson is starting at second base Tuesday against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson gets the nod with Neil Walker sidelined with his back ailment. Walker is not expected to be out long, but while he is, Johnson should start almost daily at second base.

Johnson is starting at second base Friday against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson, who the Mets just re-acquired from the Braves for Akeel Morris, is in the lineup in place of the injured Neil Walker (chest). Johnson will also see time at first and third base, giving James Loney and Wilmer Flores days off, providing additional lineup flexibility to manager Terry Collins.

Johnson is in the lineup and batting seventh in his Mets debut Wednesday against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson was hitting just .215/.273/.289 with the Braves through 49 games, so it remains to be seen whether the 34-year-old will provide an offensive boost to the Mets, but at the very least he will add veteran experience and be a quality, versatile defender in the infield.

Johnson was traded to the Mets on Wednesday in exchange for minor league pitcher Akeel Morris, ESPN's Adam Rubin reports.

EDGE Analysis

By acquiring Johnson, the Mets add another established veteran to their infield corps. Johnson has primarily played second base this season with the Braves, but his versatility makes him a viable option at the corner infield spots as well. With David Wright sidelined and stopgap options like Ty Kelly and Matt Reynolds struggling to adjust to major league pitching, the acquisition of Kelly is a potentially shrewd move for the Mets as he could be a fixture in the lineup until Wright returns. Johnson will also provide depth up the middle if Neil Walker or Wilmer Flores need days off.
