Jays Avoid Arbitration With Reed Johnson

If the rumors about shoring up Toronto's outfield with either Milton Bradley, Brad Wilkerson or even Nomar Garciaparra are true, Reed Johnson will most definitely be the fourth or fifth outfielder. The good news is that not only is he more suited to that role, but that he makes a pretty good one since he is capable of starting on occasion.
