by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Josh Johnson pitches two perfect innings Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2014) Padres pitcher Josh Johnson threw two perfect innings in his spring debut Monday, striking out two in his team's 7-2 win over the Giants.

"I thought his delivery looked good, he repeated his delivery and it really looked as though his mechanics are in order," manager Bud Black told MLB.com. "Just the way he's been throwing, I expected some good things."

Johnson is looking to rebound after going 2-8 with a 6.20 ERA in 16 starts last season.

"Everything is starting to feel comfortable again," Johnson said. "I'm not fighting myself, not fighting my body. I'm just trying to get out there and be able to repeat my delivery. It's a lot easier. I have command of my fastball and know where it's going."

Johnson underwent surgery after the season to have bone chips removed from his pitching elbow. Despite the poor numbers overall, he posted the best strikeout rate of his career last season.

Padres encouraged by Josh Johnson


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2014) The Padres have been encouraged by Josh Johnson's performance in camp thus far, according to the New York Post

Johnson joined the club after a rough year in Toronto. Through 81 1/3 innings, he posted a 6.20 ERA. Johnson went to San Diego on a one year deal in order to try and build his value. Johnson is coming off October elbow surgery. While the team is happy with his progress, there's a chance his workload is limited during the spring. 


Padres expect Josh Johnson to 'be as good as he was before'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/16/2014) Padres starting pitcher Josh Johnson is looking to bounce back in 2014 after a rough year in 2013, when he made just 16 starts due to injury and posted a 6.20 ERA for Toronto.

"I wasn't getting good extension. Balls were flat, balls were up. You've got to be able to find that middle ground and go with that," he said of his struggles last season. "I couldn't do that."

Padres manager Bud Black said Johnson is "physically and mentally in a good spot." Pitching coach Darren Balsley doesn't think it will take much to get Johnson back to his old form.

"He had the one mediocre year, but everyone has a bad year," Balsley said. "And contributing to his trouble was arm problems. I expect him to be as good as he was before.

"Whenever a guy is hurt, mechanically they change. They try to protect something that is hurt, and they sometimes don't realize their delivery is changing. He's [6-foot-7], and I think that he lost his downhill plane to his fastball and everything was a little flat. We want Josh to stand tall, throw downhill and throw strikes like he was doing before he got hurt."


Josh Johnson doing well coming off October elbow surgery


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2014) Padres starting pitcher Josh Johnson, who is coming off October elbow surgery, said he's responded well after throwing three bullpen sessions, according to U-T San Diego.

Though, the plan remains for the Padres to keep Johnson on a lighter throwing program for the first two weeks of spring training before ramping up his preparation for the regular season.

"I talked to (Padres manager) Bud Black and he said you might not go every other day and we’re just gonna play it by ear and see how you’re feeling," Johnson said.

Still, Johnson seems pleased with his progress and others have taken notice as well. Johnson, who has spent the last few offseasons throwing long toss at UNLV, was recently approached by Rebels head coach Tim Chambers.

"I was getting ready to throw a bullpen, and he said, 'I can see the difference already just by you playing catch' at 75 feet or what it was at the time," Johnson said. "That was huge. I’ve felt good, but for someone else to say I can see a difference, I can see you getting that extension, that was nice."


Josh Johnson says elbow impacted performance


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/21/2013) The Padres and starting pitcher Josh Johnson finalized their one-year deal Thursday. Johnson will earn $8 million in 2014, with the potential for $1.25 million more if he makes 26 starts. Johnson went 2-8 with a 6.20 ERA in 16 starts for the Blue Jays last season, but he compiled a 3.15 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 8.2 strikeouts per nine innings in eight seasons with the Marlins.

"Here's a guy who led the league in ERA who has been a dominant pitcher," general manager Josh Byrnes said. "We know there's risk in any signing, but we're very excited about the upside, what he can bring and now what our rotation can do to deliver us toward our goal."

Johnson had surgery to remove bone chips from his right elbow in October -- an injury that he thinks may have impacted his performance.

"I was pretty close last year, just not healthy," Johnson said. "It was tough trying to throw through it and all of a sudden I'm getting these weird pains all the way up my triceps and my forearm's getting tight because of everything going on with my elbow. Hopefully that took care of everything."

Rangers interested in Josh Johnson


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/7/2013) ESPN.com reports that the Rangers are showing interested in free agent start pitcher Josh Johnson, and apparently, he's showing interest back.

"He's always had interest in playing in Texas," agent Matt Sosnick said Thursday. "He's from Oklahoma. It's a very well-run organization. They win all the time. That would lend itself to interest."

Johnson would most likely seek a one-year deal to re-establish his value after going 2-8 with a 6.20 ERA and 1.66 WHIP during a season in which he battled triceps and forearm injuries.

"He's looking at some point in his career to prove that he’s worth a huge deal,” Sosnick said. “A season with 33 starts and 200 innings would be a huge help.” 

Johnson also had surgery to remove bone chips from his elbow after the season, but according to Sosnick, he "has no pain" and is "close to 100 percent."
