Johnson was traded from the Orioles to the Athletics on Monday in exchange for Jemile Weeks, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports.
Johnson's landing spot is rather surprising, given that his arbitration number for 2014 could land north of $10 million. The A's are known to be one of the more statistically-inclined organizations, so we wouldn't expect them to pony up big bucks for a non-elite closer. Regardless, assuming that he sticks with the A's, Johnson should see plenty of save opportunities in 2014. This probably puts an end to any chance of Grant Balfour re-signing with the A's.
