Reed Johnson OF MIA 4 Months

Reed Johnson went 2-for-5 with a homer in the rout of the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Johnson doesn't play much, but the 37-year-old has performed whenever called upon in 2014. Coming off a season in which he slashed just .244/.311/.341 in 136 plate appearances, Johnson had put up a .340/.370/.560 in 50 at-bats. Because his playing time is sporadic, Johnson can only be used in deep NL-only formats.

Johnson, a non-roster invitee, is hitting .410 (16-for-39) with one home run and four doubles over 14 games during Grapefruit League play. The 37-year-old should be a useful bench piece for Miami, but he's unlikely to be fantasy relevant.
