Johnson was released by the Nationals on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson had been in the mix for one of the final bench spots in Washington, and when he didn't make the cut, the Nationals chose to grant him his outright release rather than send him to the minors. He'll look to catch on with another organization in need of outfield depth.

Johnson is still in the mix for the final spot on the Nationals' bench.

EDGE Analysis

He's hit an underwhelming .276/.371/.310 in 29 at-bats this spring, but Johnson would give the Nats a veteran right-handed pinch-hitter as well as extra depth in the outfielder behind Michael Taylor. Whoever wins the job might only hold onto it until the club decides to call up Trea Turner, however.

Johnson signed a minor league deal with the Nationals on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson spent the 2015 season with the Nationals, but injuries limited him to just 17 games. He'll be 39 years old by the time the 2016 rolls around and will likely have to earn a roster spot in spring training.

Johnson (foot) was activated from the 60-day disabled list Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson has been out since late April because of a foot and then oblique issue, but it appears he'll finally rejoin the club. He probably won't see much playing time over the last week of the season outside of pinch hitting. In a corresponding move, Denard Span was transferred to the 60-day DL to open up a spot on the 40-man roster.

Johnson (foot) was pulled off his rehab assignment after sneezing and suffering and pulling an oblique muscle, Jacob Emert of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson continues to work his way back from a foot injury, but an unfortunate accident will push him back further yet. Even when healthy, it wouldn't be surprising if there's no spot for him on the 25-man roster.

Johnson (foot) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Friday, the Nationals' official website reports.

It's merely a procedural transaction to free up a spot on the 40-man roster. Johnson is hoping to join the Nationals in September or October, but he may end up missing the rest of the season.

Johnson (foot) hopes to rejoin the Nationals in September or October, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

Johnson won't even be able to jog for 8-to-10 weeks, and he isn't expected to resume baseball activities until the 12-week mark. Given that he had the surgery at the beginning of May, a return before September would be highly surprising.

Johnson underwent minor surgery Saturday to repair a damaged tendon in his left foot, The Washington Post reports.

This was first reported as a foot injury, and then a calf strain, but it turns out the first diagnosis was closer to the truth. Reed is expected to return before the end of the season, but he won't be back by the All-Star break. There's no guarantee he'll have a role with the big-league club once he's healthy.

Johnson (left calf strain) was placed on the 15-day DL on Wednesday.

The injury was originally reported as a foot injury, but now that we know he has a calf strain he will be out indefinitely. Johnson was a bench bat who was being used sparingly so this should have minimal fantasy impact.

Johnson pulled a muscle under his foot Tuesday and will be out indefinitely, CSN Mid-Atlantic's Mark Zuckerman reports.

Johnson apparently felt something pop, and Zuckerman reports that it sounds like Johnson will be out awhile. There will undoubtedly be tests performed Tuesday night or Wednesday morning to get a better diagnosis, and a DL stint could be forthcoming.
