Padres | Two Friars pitchers rehabbing

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 11:50:02 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Josh Johnson (neck) threw a bullpen session Tuesday, Aug. 18, and SP Cory Luebke (elbow) has started playing catch in his rehab.

Fantasy Tip: Neither pitcher will pitch again in 2015, and there's no guarantee either will be healthy to open up the 2016 season, so you'll likely want to avoid them both in drafts next spring.

Padres | Josh Johnson ends sim game early

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 18:49:00 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Josh Johnson (neck) cut his simulated game short Monday, June 15, after feeling tingling in his fingers. He was limited to just three pitches. Johnson will have tests Wednesday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has started and stopped throwing on a couple of different occasions during his rehab. It remains uncertain when he will be able to return to the mound for the big club, so FantasyScore players need not bother with him for a while.

Padres | Josh Johnson stops throwing

Mon, 25 May 2015 18:16:41 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Josh Johnson (neck) had to stop throwing because of a "nerve situation" in his neck, according to manager Bud Black. Johnson is working his way back from Tommy John surgery, and he also reported tightness in his triceps after throwing a simulated game April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is quickly becoming irrelevant in fantasy circles. There's no reason to be stashing Johnson in any type of league at this point.

Padres | Josh Johnson moved to 60-day DL

Sun, 24 May 2015 05:45:50 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Josh Johnson (elbow) was moved from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day DL Saturday, May 23. Johnson continues to recover from Tommy John surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Once an elite strikeout pitcher, Johnson's career has been derailed by a plethora of injuries. FantasyScore owners will need to allow for a few starts after an eventual return to the major leagues in order to judge what Johnson has left in the tank.

Padres | Josh Johnson feels good after 'pen

Sat, 16 May 2015 11:07:44 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Josh Johnson (elbow, triceps) felt fine a day after his 32-pitch bullpen session Friday, May 15, and he hadn't been on a mound since an April 28 simulated game in which he felt tightness in his triceps. Johnson said he felt "real good" after his session Friday, but the team is taking extra caution after he's coming back from his second Tommy John procedure. Johnson is hoping to throw a few more side sessions, another simulated game and then go on a minor league rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson could be a rotation candidate for the Padres when he's ready to return to MLB action, and he can be a useful source of strikeouts when he's healthy, especially when pitching at Petco Park. Stash him now in deep mixed and NL-only leagues to get ahead of the game.

Padres | Josh Johnson resumes throwing

Tue, 12 May 2015 16:34:06 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Josh Johnson (triceps) has resumed throwing after having soreness after a simulated game May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has a ways to go before he'll be considered for a rotation spot in San Diego. Even when he's healthy, though, there may not be room for him in the starting five. If fully healthy, he could find success at pitcher-friendly Petco Park, so he's worth stashing in NL-only leagues if you have the room.

Padres | Josh Johnson to play catch soon

Tue, 05 May 2015 20:17:22 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Josh Johnson (triceps) said Tuesday, May 5, that he had some triceps tightness after his simulated game a week ago. He said the pain is now gone, and he will play catch later this week.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain when Johnson will be able to return to the big club, but FantasyScore players will have another solid pitching option to use when Johnson finally is able to return.

Padres | Josh Johnson moving closer

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 16:23:49 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Josh Johnson (elbow) had another successful bullpen session Monday, April 13, in which he threw all of his pitches. He will pitch in minor league games next month.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson could be a rotation option for the Padres in a couple months, depending on how Ian Kennedy (hamstring) comes back from his injury. He's a stash option right now for NL-only owners. Keep him on your radar in deep mixed leagues and monitor his progress.

Padres | Odrisamer Despaigne likely to enter rotation

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 10:29:15 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Odrisamer Despaigne is expected to replace SP Ian Kennedy (hamstring) in the starting rotation. SP Josh Johnson (elbow) could be an option for the rotation in around six weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Despaigne's ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) fantasy baseball value increases a good deal now that Kennedy is hurt. He's relevant now in deep mixed leagues now that he has a rotation spot in the short term, and he'll be an attractive FantasyScore option in the right matchups.

Padres | Josh Johnson placed on DL

Sun, 05 Apr 2015 16:15:19 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Josh Johnson (elbow) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, April 5.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson hasn't made more than 16 starts since 2012 with the Miami Marlins and missed the entire 2014 season due to injury. If Johnson is ever able to put the injuries behind him he could become a viable fantasy option, as he'll play his home games in one of the league's most pitcher-friendly ballparks. Johnson will need to prove he still has something to offer before owners reinvest.
