 DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) -Shannon Stewart appears to have won the job as the Blue Jays' starting left fielder after Toronto released Reed Johnson on Sunday morning.
Johnson, who was hitting .289 with three doubles and three RBIs, had spent his entire career with the Blue Jays.
``I don't have any hard feelings,'' Johnson said. ``I don't have much of a choice right now except to move on. It's really all I can say.''
The 31-year-old was drafted in the 17th round (523rd overall) in 1998 and was signed by Toronto through the end of this season.
Johnson had a breakout year in 2006, batting .319. But a herniated disk problem put him on the disabled list last season, when he hit just .238 in 79 games.
Stewart is hitting .226 this spring since signing a minor league contract Feb. 24.
