The Indians reassigned Johnson to minor-league camp Friday.

Johnson received an invite to spring training as a non-roster invitee and showcased himself well with a 1.005 OPS over 27 at-bats, but was always facing long odds to make the Opening Day roster. The 23-year-old spent last season at Double-A but seems likely to spend the bulk of the 2019 at Triple-A.
