The Cubs inked Reed Johnson to a 1-year deal for the 2012 MLB season.  After spending the 2010 with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Johnson rebounded with the Cubs in 2011.  He started 49 games and racked up 266 at-bats in 111 games.  He gained significant playing time with a nice .309 batting average and an impressive .816 OPS.  Johnson’s role with the Cubs will remain as the 4th outfielder behind Alfonso Soriano, Marlon Byrd and recently acquired David DeJesus.
