The Braves are interested in signing free-agent infielder Kelly Johnson, according to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Johnson signed with the Braves as a free agent prior to each of the past two seasons and was traded to the Mets both years.
In 2015, the Mets acquired Johnson and Juan Uribe for minor leaguers John Gant and Robert Whalen. Last season, they acquired Johnson in return for RHP prospect Akeel Morris.
In 131 games with the Mets during that time, Johnson, 34, hit .260 with a .319 OBP, 14 home runs, 14 doubles, 25 stolen bases and 37 RBIs, while playing all four infield positions and left field.
