Josh Johnson

His rehab assignment appears to be going well. Any thoughts on him for the 2nd half?

Jun 26 RHP Josh Johnson (elbow) allowed two earned runs on six hits in 5 1/3 innings for Class AA Carolina on Tuesday. He struck out four and allowed no walks.


Jun 25 Craig Barnes, of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, reports Florida Marlins SP Josh M. Johnson (shoulder) gave up two earned runs and six hits while striking out four and walking none in 5 1/3 innings pitched Tuesday, June 24, with Double-A Carolina.


Jun 25 Johnson had another successful rehab start Tuesday as he returns from Tommy John surgery, throwing 5.1 innings for Double-A Carolina and allowing two runs on six hits. He struck out four and did not walk a batter.

Recommendation: The control is especially impressive, as that's usually the last thing a pitcher gets back as they try to regain a feel for their pitches following the surgery. Once Johnson proves he can handle a 100-pitch workload, expect to see him get the call back to the majors.

I wish they would have said what his pitch counts were for those two starts.
I'm putting him on my watch list, he might be a valuable pickup for the stretch run.
Thanks for the update.
