Braves bringing back veteran Kelly Johnson

The Braves are bringing back versatile veteran Kelly Johnson, who agreed to terms Wednesday on a one-year, $2 million contract, a person familiar with the situation said. The deal was pending a physical.

Johnson, who’ll be 34 in February, hit .265 with 14 home runs in 335 plate appearances last season with the Braves and Mets, including 13 homers in 300 PAs against right-handers.

Johnson, a left-handed hitter, can play all four infield positions and the corner outfield positions, and could get plenty of playing time at third base with the Braves, perhaps in a platoon with Adonis Garcia.
