      Reed Johnson: Released by the Nationals

      Johnson was released by the Nationals on Sunday. 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.

      Nationals' Reed Johnson: In contention for final bench spot

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

      Nationals OF Reed Johnson activated after five months out

      In the ultimate better-late-than-ever move, the Nationals reinstated outfielder Reed Johnson from the 60-day disabled list Saturday. Johnson has been out since late April because of foot and oblique issues, 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. He managed four hits in 18 at-bats before going down.

      Nationals OF Reed Johnson injures oblique while sneezing

      Outfielder Reed Johnson, who was on a rehab assignment with the Nationals' Class A team due to a foot injury, will be sidelined again after injuring his oblique while sneezing, per MASN Sports. Johnson, who was nearing a potential return to the Nationals, was hit by a pitch in his side, followed that up with violent sneeze and wound up injuring his oblique, much to the amazement of Washington manager Matt Williams. "Strange happenings," Williams said. "He got hit in the ribs, and then sneezed and pulled an oblique in the same area. I don't know what it was. But he actually sneezed and he's got an oblique strain. So he's been taken back off of a rehab and we're dealing with that. I've never ... there have been a lot of strange things." Johnson played 12 games for the Nationals before going on the DL. He was 5-for-16 in five games with Class A Potomac.

      Nationals OF Reed Johnson goes 0 for 2 in first rehab game

      Nationals outfielder Reed Johnson participated in his first bit of game action since he tore a tendon in his first in April. Johnson played three innings of a rehab game with Class A Potomac on Thursday. The veteran outfielder, who started in left field on Thursday, went 0 for 2 before being lifted for a defensive replacement in the fourth inning. It is not yet clear when Johnson will be able to be activated from the disabled list, but it is possible that he joins the team when the rosters expand on September 1. "We'll see how it plays out with how I'm feeling and stuff, but I know I've kept my body in good enough shape to where I don't think it'll take too long to get me back," Johnson said, per The Washington Post. "Obviously, they're going to ease me into it. It's just not the same as trying to duplicate that outside of a game is kind of tough."
