Robothal: Dodgers Making A Run At Reed Johnson

Via Twitter. He's a fourth outfielder at this point in his career, made obsolete in Chicago when the Cubs signed ex-Padre Xavier Nady for $3.3M/1 year. He's still a better option than the rumored interest in Garret Anderson.

Rosenthal has a longer piece up at Fox Sports.

Update 2/1/10: The Dodgers have offered Johnson a one-year/$800,000 contract according to ESPN.

MSTI has more on why this likely spells the end of Jason Repko, and why it means Blake DeWitt is probably starting the season with AAA Albuquerque. It also means that, given Johnson's historic ability to hit lefties well, Andre Ethier will be run in a strict platoon this year.

"He's still a better option than the rumored interest in Garret Anderson."

True, but Xavier Paul is a better option than both combined.

As is Brian Barton for that matter.
