ATLANTA — Outfielder Matt Diaz has agreed to a $2.55 million, one-year contract with the Atlanta Braves, who let second baseman Kelly Johnson go free by failing to offer a 2010 contract.

Diaz hit .313 with 13 homers and 58 RBIs last season, when he made $1,237,500.

Johnson batted .224 eight homers and 29 RBIs, losing his starting job to Martin Prado. He can sign with any team starting Sunday.

Relievers Boone Logan and Peter Moylan remain as unsigned arbitration-eligible players on Atlanta's 40-man roster.
