Two weeks into the season, Johnson is 0-2 with an 18.90 ERA and one blown save in five appearances for the Athletics. Manager Bob Melvin couldn't afford to wait while the former Orioles closer got into a groove, removing him from that role on Thursday.

He's allowed at least two runs in three of his five appearances, his seven total runs allowed is tied for the most in the AL among relievers. He's allowed more walks and hits than any other reliever in the league. You should dump Johnson immediately and find a new fantasy closer.

Johnson blew the save in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against Cleveland.

Johnson was tagged for three runs and three hits in two-thirds of an inning. While Johnson also took the loss in Monday's 2-0 defeat after allowing both runs in the ninth, he doesn't appear to be in danger of losing his job just yet.
