Just saw on mlbtraderumors that Micah Johnson has been designated for assignment

Anyone think we should bring him back?

No. Not really enough at bats to go around between him and the rest of our options.

Don't see much point. Moncada, Saladino and Lawrie would all be ahead of him and as Matt once broke down for Future Sox, he really wouldn't fit in the outfield.

I'd take him for sure. Assuming Frazier is traded, Lawrie can shift to 3B and the Sox can give Johnson a half season tryout or whatever until Moncada is ready.

Give me Johnson over Sanchez or Leury anyday of the week.

Definitely agree with that last part. I like Garcia as a potential 25th man but that's not what Micah would be.

Give me Saladino over Johnson and, as backups, give me Leury and Sanchez over Johnson since they can both play more than 1 position. The only way Johnson would make sense is if you've moved both Frazier and Lawrie, leaving 2 gaps open for tryouts.

I was always on the Sanchez > Johnson train. Who knew Sanchez could play this badly but still be a more useful player than Johnson

Leury and Sanchez had way too many chances, they will be career backups or AAAA players, and they won't be backups for our next playoff team. Micah only has 100 AB's or so in the big leagues, way too early to write him off, and IIRC he's a notoriously slow starter and takes a while to adjust to the league level. With him, at least if you give him a season to prove himself, he might turn out to be something you can get value out of.

Just say no to Micah Johnson. Athletic like a Greek god but has the baseball IQ of a pop tart and a horrible defender. The Sox already have better options.

The Sox do not have a definitively better option than Micah Johnson at 2b or CF until July when Moncada is called up. That said I just dont think its worth the effort to bring him back into the fold, leave the past in the past.

Saladino, Lawrie and Sanchez are all better options than Micah.Do you remember how much of a butcher Micah was at second? Beyond horrible, the stuff nightmares are made of. We're talking some seriously f***ing bad joojoo on Micah's glove and defensive footwork. The team that just DFA'd Micah is looking for a 2B. What does that tell ya?
