The Braves had a $1.6 million option on Johnson for next year, but they instead bought out said option for $150,000. General manager Frank Wren said that doesn't necessarily mean Johnson won't be back in Atlanta next season.
Johnson hit .244 in 74 games last season while battling Achilles tendonitis.
