Padres | Josh Johnson to have TJS

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 13:44:52 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Josh Johnson (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery Thursday, April 24, and it will technically be a cleanup of his ulnar collateral ligament.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson just can't stay healthy. He'll be lost for the rest of the year and at least the beginning of the 2014 season. This bodes well for Robbie Erlin sticking around in the rotation for the long term.

Padres | Josh Johnson to see doctor Tuesday

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 14:55:46 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Josh Johnson (forearm) will meet with Dr. James Andrews Tuesday, April 22, according to manager Bud Black. Andrews will check Johnson's ligaments, forearm flexor tendons and the back of his elbow.

Fantasy Tip: Many have likely moved on from Johnson at this point because of his injury history. If you're waiting, you'll have to wait a little longer. There looks like a decent chance he'll have to undergo Tommy John surgery for the second time in his career.

San Diego Padres SP Josh Johnson (forearm) will visit with Dr. James Andrews.

Padres | Josh Johnson to start on DL

Sat, 22 Mar 2014 19:35:31 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Josh Johnson (forearm) will be sidelined at least a month to five weeks due to a flexor strain in his right forearm. He will start the regular season on the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson can't seem to catch a break. He has plenty of talent, but his propensity for injury makes him a very risky fantasy selection. At this point, he is worth a flier in the later rounds of mixed leagues, but make sure to have plenty of depth on hand since he is pretty brittle.

Padres | Josh Johnson using changeup more

Mon, 03 Mar 2014 14:43:17 -0800

San Diego Padres SP Josh Johnson is using his changeup more this spring. "That's probably the best my changeup has been since I was in the minor leagues," he said. "I've talked to (Hoffman) about his thinking with it and what he does; maybe something can click." Johnson has also worked with pitching coach Darren Balsley on a more downhill plane with good extension in his delivery. Johnson tossed two scoreless innings Monday, March 3, with two strikeouts.

"I talked to (manager Bud Black) and he was saying you might not go (pitch) every other day and we're going to play it by ear and see how you're feeling," Johnson said.
