Charles Johnson is Back! Signs 5-Year Deal

The Marlins have brought catcher Charles Johnson back with a 5-year $35 million deal. To make room on the roster for Johnson, the Marlins will designate for assignment the contract of right-handed pitcher Reid Cornelius. “We’re thrilled to have Charles Johnson back in the Marlins organization. He was the first player ever selected by the Marlins in the 1992 June amateur draft. He is also a local fan favorite who played high school and college baseball here in South Florida,” said GM David Dombrowski. “He was an integral part of our World Series Championship team in 1997. He is one of the best all-around catchers in the game and his coming back improves our Club significantly. In addition to his offense, I think he can help our young pitching staff reach the next level in their maturity process.”
