      Dan Johnson: Will become free agent

      Johnson has elected to become a free agent, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. Johnson managed just 19 at-bats with the Cardinals in 2015 and the 36-year-old hasn't seen more than 100 at-bats in a season since 2011. He could sign a minor-league deal with another club this offseason, but he's unlikely to become fantasy relevant so late in his career.

      Cardinals summon 1B Dan Johnson from Triple-A on Wednesday

      The Cardinals recalled first baseman Dan Johnson from Triple-A Memphis on Wednesday, MLB.com reports. Johnson started the year in the Reds organization, but was picked up by the Cardinals after Cincinnati released him at the end of April. In 61 games with Memphis, Johnson was batting .265 with 11 homers and 11 doubles, with 42 RBI. With Matt Adams out with a quad injury, Johnson will handle first base with Mark Reynolds going back over to third. Matt Carpenter is expected to cover second base with Kolten Wong dealing with a concussion, according to Fox Sports Midwest. Johnson was last with the Blue Jays, appearing in 15 games for Toronto in 2014. His last bit of sustained success came when he hit 18 home runs for the A's in 2007. The Cardinals still need to clear space on the 40-man roster for Johnson, who is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs.

      Astros' Dan Johnson may not make Opening Day roster

      Astros veteran infielder Dan Johnson could miss out on making the Opening Day roster, according to the Houston Chronicle. Johnson was signed to a minor-league deal in the offseason before Houston picked up Evan Gattis and Colby Rasmus. "He's a real pro," manager A.J. Hinch said Tuesday. "He's done and seen everything in his career, including (playing) overseas, so he realizes the situation here, and I talked to him before camp started. (I told him) that he was going to see a revolving door at first base and I think he sees, but his at-bats are really good. There's a reason a guy like him sticks around for a long time. "You root for a guy like him, but it is awfully crowded at first for us."
