Johnson, 31, struggled last season with the A's after being traded by the Baltimore Orioles. He managed only two saves and finished with a 7.14 ERA in 38 appearances for the A's before being released on Aug. 1. Five days later, Johnson signed with the Tigers and finished 1-0 with a 6.92 ERA in 16 games.
