Kelly Johnson, who was re-acquired by the Mets in a trade with the Braves on Wednesday, said despite leaving his home in Atlanta, he is excited to come back to the Mets, reports ESPN New York's Adam Rubin.
Johnson was hitting .215 with a .273 OBP and .289 SLG with the Braves before being traded to the Mets.
"It's obviously a good situation," Johnson said, according to Rubin. "I know what I'm coming into. I'm way more comfortable. And them knowing me too, that's also a key. You don't have to feel any pressure about proving to be this or that. You just come in and do the same thing and play hard and hope you do some stuff to contribute to some wins."
Johnson hit .250 with five home runs and 13 RBIs in 49 games with the Mets last season after he was acquired from the Braves along with Juan Uribe in late July.
