Padres plan to bring Josh Johnson back as a reliever


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2015) If Padres pitcher Josh Johnson is able to return before the end of the season, he will do so as a reliever, reports The San Diego Union-Tribune.

"I like starting," Johnson said Sunday, "but whatever I can do to help the team."

Johnson is trying to recover from his second Tommy John surgery and he was able play catch from 60 feet Saturday and Sunday. The team hopes to have Johnson on the mound this season.

"We're always hopeful,” assistant general manager Fred Uhlman Jr said. "He's just starting to ramp up, so we can't answer that until he gets back up on a mound."

Padres SP Josh Johnson (elbow) to resume throwing program


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/27/2015) Padres starting pitcher Josh Johnson, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, will resume his throwing program after an MRI on his elbow was inconclusive, per The San Diego Union-Tribune.

Johnson had the surgery over 14 months ago, but during a simulated game two weeks ago he felt tingling in his fingers and the outing was cut short.

"Because it's a revision, because the ligament had to be redone, the MRI's kind of inconclusive on the condition of the ligament," Padres manager Pat Murphy said Friday. "JJ felt some soreness when he was throwing last time he was throwing, so we shut him down.

"We're going to resume the rehab. He's going to begin throwing soon."

Murphy didn't provide an exact date on when Johnson would resume throwing.

"They don't know about the integrity of the ligament right now," Murphy said. "It's pretty complicated because it is a revision."
