Player Notes
Dodgers acquired RHP Jim Johnson from the Braves in the 13-player, three-team Hector Olivera trade.

Advice: Johnson had been serving as the Braves' closer for the past month-plus and was doing very well in that role. He'll enter the Dodgers' bullpen sitting on a strong 2.25 season ERA. Arodys Vizcaino appears likely to take over ninth-inning duties for the Braves.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Braves are "getting a lot of play" on Jim Johnson.

Advice: It's not a surprise, as Johnson has a 2.25 ERA in a nice bounce-back season and is only making $1.6 million. He'll be used as a setup man wherever he goes, which means his fantasy value is about to take a hit. Arodys Vizcaino is the most likely candidate to take over at closer for the Braves if/when Johnson is dealt.

Jim Johnson earned his ninth save of the season Sunday in the Braves' win over the Cardinals.

Advice: Johnson surrendered a two-out single to Kolten Wong, but he got Matt Carpenter to fly out to center field to end the minor threat and preserve Atlanta's one-run lead. Johnson now owns a 2.11 ERA in 47 innings of relief this season for the Braves. The 32-year-old right-hander is a strong candidate to be moved ahead of the July 31 trade deadline.

Sun, Jul 26 Rotoworld
Jim Johnson worked a scoreless ninth inning against the Dodgers on Tuesday to earn his eighth save of the season.

Advice: Johnson was his usual efficient self, inducing two ground outs while needing just 10 pitches to seal the deal. The right-hander recently gained mixed league value when he slid into the closer role vacated by the injured Jason Grilli. Johnson owns a 2.15 ERA and 1.22 WHIP to go with the eight saves, and he's a solid if unspectacular option for saves going forward.
