Dodgers send Johnson to Minor League camp

JUPITER, Fla. -- The Dodgers made one final roster move on Tuesday before heading to Arizona, reassigning veteran right-hander Jason Johnson to Minor League camp.

Johnson, 34, made five Grapefruit League appearances for the Dodgers, finishing with a 4.50 ERA. He struck out three batters and walked six over eight spring innings.

After spending one season pitching for the Saibu Lions in Japan, Johnson signed a Minor League deal with the Dodgers last month, accepting a non-roster invitation to Spring Training. In a 10-year Major League career spent mostly as a starting pitcher, Johnson bounced between seven different teams, compiling a 55-98 record and 4.99 ERA.

He had been competing with fellow right-handers Yhency Brazoban, Greg Jones and Chan Ho Park -- among others -- for a roster spot with the Dodgers.
