Description: Just called up first baseman Dan Johnson is in the Blue Jays starting lineup Friday night.
Insight: Johnson will be the DH with Jose Bautista playing at first base. He was batting .248 with 17 homers at Triple-A Buffalo before getting the call.

Description: Chicago first baseman Dan Johnson finished the season in style with three homers and five RBI Wednesday in a win over Cleveland.
Insight: Johnson spent most of the year in Triple-A so these were his first home runs of the season. Ironically, Johnson's last major league home run before tonight came during the final game of the 2011 regular season when he was still a member of the Tampa Bay Rays.

Description: White Sox minor league first baseman Dan Johnson is second in the International League in homers with 17. Johnson is batting .286 with a .990 OPS in 66 games with Triple-A Charlotte this season.
Insight: The White Sox are unlikely to need Johnson at first base with Paul Konerko there, but Adam Dunn was scratched from the lineup Wednesday with an ankle sprain so if that turns out to be more serious than Chicago is letting on, we could see Johnson in the big leagues. Johnson has a .739 OPS and 53 homers in 399 career major league games with Oakland and Tampa Bay, so he's not too exciting, but AL-only owners in deep leagues should keep him on their radar.

9/18/2010 9:01:00 AM
Description: Johnson went 1-for-3 with a home run, RBI, walk and a run scored on Friday against the Angels.

Description: Johnson went 2-for-2 with a home run, four RBI, two walks and two runs scored on Saturday against the Blue Jays.
Insight: Johnson has seen action at first base for the Rays with Carlos Pena on the DL. He has three hits in 11 at-bats with a home run and five RBI over that span. (SportsBuff.com)
 
Steady12/21/2008 11:31:00 AM
Description: Rays 1B Johnson is probably headed to Japan, according to the St. Petersburg Times. The Rays will sell Johnson to the Yokohama.
Insight: Just a few years ago, Johnson looked like a future star with the A's. His career has derailed but maybe he'll get this on the right track and he'll get to eat plenty of sushi. (SportsBuff.com)
