Athletics | Jim Johnson nails down save

Oakland Athletics RP Jim Johnson worked a perfect ninth inning Wednesday, May 7, against the Seattle Mariners in Game 2 of a doubleheader, nailing down his second save of the season, and first since being pulled from the closer's role a month ago.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson could slowly work his way back into the closer's role if he re-gains the trust of his skipper. Fantasy owners might have a bit of a sour taste in their mouths from his early struggles, but he is worth adding in all AL-only leagues and some deeper mixed formats in case he gets his gig back.
