Nick Johnson will miss four-to-six weeks with a stress fracture in his right hand.
Disappointing. Johnson was producing like an All-Star, but he might not get back to that level after returning, and it's looking like wrist and hand injuries could plague him throughout his career. Manager Joe Torre said Todd Zeile and Bubba Trammell will share the DH role while Johnson is out, so both make nice pickups in AL-only leagues. Trammell is the better hitter, but Zeile likely will play more initially, especially since Jason Giambi's injury is limiting him to DH duties right now and Trammell can't play first. It doesn't appear that Juan Rivera is a candidate to be recalled. The Yankees plan to add another pitcher when Johnson is place on the DL. <br>-Rotoworld
