The York Revolution signed outfielder Cody Johnson on Monday. Johnson, 24, comes to York just nine days from being released from the New York Yankees’ Class AAA Scranton-Wilkes Barre affiliate.

A first-round draft pick (24th overall) of the Atlanta Braves in 2006, Johnson played at the Class AAA level for the first time in his career this season. In 18 games at Scranton-Wilkes Barre, Johnson batted just .167 with a home run, double, four RBIs and six runs scored.

He’s a career .219 hitter in 214 games at Class AA. His best came in 63 games at the rookie ball level in 2007, when he batted .305 in 243 plate appearances.

Roster: York has now reached the Atlantic League maximum of 27 active players, which now includes six outfielders.
