Dan Johnson is the Latest MLB'er on his Way to Japan

by Patrick Newman (Dec 19, 2008)

Nikkan Sports is reporting that Yokohama has reached an agreement to bring Tampa Bay Ray Dan Johnson over to Japan. I saw Johnson quite a bit when he was with the A's, and I like his approach at the plan; he always had a plan and was very patient. Where he plays in Yokohama will be a question, the BayStars have batting champion Seiichi Uchikawa at first, Johnson probably isn't much of an outfielder and there's no DH in the Central League. My gut feel is that he'll wind up in left.
