The Florida Marlins are preparing for the likelihood that right-hander Josh Johnson won't be ready when the season starts April 2. Grapefruit League action starts Wednesday, but Johnson, penciled in as the No. 2 starter, hasn't even thrown off a mound at full speed since September. He's experienced some soreness in his right forearm. "You guys know the math. If he's not on the hill, then he becomes an opening day roster issue," manager Fredi Gonzalez said Saturday. "We're borderline now." Johnson, who finished 12-7 with a 3.10 ERA in 2006, was supposed to throw on flat ground Saturday. That was canceled when he woke up with pain. "Like we always said from the very beginning, we're going to take it easy on him," Gonzalez said. "He didn't feel right, so we shut him down. We're going to take it back to step one and see where we're at."

I think it would be Mitre.

From what i was reading today, it looks like Josh Johnson is going to need TJ surgery in the near future. That this injury has been around too long and is not going away.

This doesn't sound good...

From yahoo sports
Josh Johnson's sore arm might be the result of nerve damage that could force the Florida Marlins' right-hander to miss the first month of the season or more.

Three MRI exams Friday showed no ligament or rotator cuff problems, and a bone scan was normal, agent Matt Sosnick said.

"They think it's probably a nerve thing," Sosnick said. "The worst-case scenario is probably that he would be out eight to 12 weeks, but they have to figure out what this thing is."

I believe Patterson had the same injury last year and couldn't come back. He ended up with season ending surgery.

John Patterson had tendinitis in his right elbow, not nerve damage : )
