The Atlanta Braves are expected to pick up the $1.6 million club option on veteran Reed Johnson's 2014 contract but a formal announcement has not been made.


Johnson, an outfielder who was used primarily off the bench and in pinch-hitting roles, batted .244 in 74 games with the Braves in 2013. He battled achilles tendonitis during the season which landed him on the disabled list.

The Braves outfield is solid and loaded with young stars but keeping Johnson gives the Braves a veteran outfielder to use when needed, a proven right-handed pinch hitter, and a valuable trade option.
