|Don't underestimate Josh Johnson|
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(6/18/13) Josh Johnson has good stuff. That's not even open for debate. In his last start Monday against the Rockies, the Blue Jays right-hander was right around 94 mph with his fastball. For the season, he's averaging 92.6, which would rank him among the 20 hardest-throwing starting pitchers, alongside Justin Verlander and Clayton Kershaw, if he had the innings to qualify.
And that's just pure heat. You could argue he's done even more damage with his secondary arsenal, which he uses 40 percent of the time, over the course of his career.
He's had injury problems over the years that have made him inconsistent and frustrating to own in Fantasy, but when he's right, the stuff still holds up, as he showed by striking out 10 Rockies over 7 1/3 scoreless innings in that start Monday. And judging by his comments after that start, he's feeling right again.
"Definitely the most comfortable I've been," Johnson said. "Just being able to get extension on all my pitches, not have to worry about the triceps or anything like that. It's definitely nice."
If he has another good start Sunday against the Orioles, he's back to must-start status.
|Josh Johnson vintage with 10 Ks|
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(6/17/13) Blue Jays starter Josh Johnson looked vintage Monday night in Toronto against Colorado. Johnson just missed earning the win as his team couldn't take the lead until he left the game, despite fanning 10 batters over seven-plus innings.
Johnson threw 106 pitches and allowed just five hits over 7 1/3 shutout frames. He walked two batters and lowered his ERA to 4.38, as he just missed his first win of the season.
Johnson (0-2) has pitched well in three straight starts with his season-high 10 Ks Monday. He's allowed four earned runs over his last 19 1/3 innings with 20 Ks. Johnson will look to keep rolling when he next starts Sunday against Baltimore.

(6/17/13) Blue Jays starting pitcher Josh Johnson made it into Monday's lineup against the Rockies after being pushed back an extra day because of a blister on his pitching hand. Johnson last took the hill June 9 against the Rangers, allowing three earned runs in five innings during a no-decision.
Johnson is 7-10 with a 3.48 ERA in 23 career starts after receiving at least six days of rest between starts.
|Josh Johnson pushed to Monday|
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(6/14/13) Blue Jays starter Josh Johnson has been pushed back again, this time to Monday, according to TSN Radio 1500.
Johnson has been dealing with a blister, and was initially pushed back to Sunday. Chien-Ming Wang will instead get the call Sunday, and will pitch on normal rest. Johnson has a 5.40 ERA in 31 2/3 innings this year.
|Blue Jays give Josh Johnson an extra day|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(6/13/13) The Blue Jays have pushed back pitcher Josh Johnson an extra day due to a blister. Johnson will start Sunday, while R.A. Dickey will take the mound Saturday against the Rangers.
Johnson has yet to pick up a win with his new club. He is 0-2 with a 5.40 ERA in six starts this season.
|After making only nine starts in 2011 due to shoulder inflammation, Josh Johnson managed to stay healthy for the entire 2012 season. Though Johnson piled up his highest innings total in three years, the rest of his stats were not quite up to par. He was able to get swings-and-misses near his typical rate, but fewer called strikes led to a dip in his strikeout rate. That additional contact added up to a 3.81 ERA and 1.28 WHIP -- numbers that are atypically high for Johnson. Poor run support helped to produce an abysmal 8-14 record. Now that Johnson is a Blue Jay, run support should not be an issue. He can still induce whiffs, so a rebound in strikeouts, ERA and WHIP could be in store, even with Johnson making the move to the American League. He still has ace potential, but because of his injury history and his disappointing 2012 numbers, it's safer to view Johnson as a top 30 starting pitcher. (Updated 11/30/12)|
