Cody Johnson Looking for Next Baseball Opportunity

York, PA---Mosley alum Cody Johnson is looking for work after being released by the Independent League team he was playing for, the York Revolution.

Cody, cut earlier this season by the Yank's Triple-A team in Scranton, was hoping to salvage his career in York.

He was hitting .268 with ten homers and 29 rbi in 47 games, though in his last ten games he was hitting under 200, and had 70 strikeouts in those 47 games. The Revolution cut him Sunday.

Johnson a first round pick by the Braves in 2006, was sold to the Yankees in 2010. For now he's out of baseball but told a reporter in York he still has the desire to play, adding "I want to do something I enjoy doing every single day, and that's why I play baseball. The last few years, that's turned into a job for me, and I'm trying to rediscover the joy in that…of it being a game, and a not a job, and that's hard."

He says he still believes can play and play well, needing an opportunity for every day at bats. We'll see if that opportunity arises.
