Josh Johnson to seek second opinion on arm injury

Josh Johnson to seek second opinion on arm injury

Our last update on Josh Johnson's injury came from GM Josh Byrnes' interview with Darren Smith on March 25th.  Byrnes said that Johnson's velocity had dropped off in the 5th inning of his last Spring Training start and afterwards experienced swelling in his elbow.  Byrnes said the good news was that he had felt better everyday since.  He explained "Sometimes these symptoms are nothing,  sometimes they're Tommy John, sometimes they're more flexor mass, more of a muscular issue." Unfortunately Johnson's symptoms have not improved and depending on which media source you read the injury is...

04/09 Padres Preview: Game 9 @ Indians (Game 2 of doubleheader)

Next up in today's doubleheader will be Robbie Erlin pitching opposite dmslamfklsamklfsa. Erlin was scheduled to pitch the series opener on Monday before it was rained out. Now he'll make his first start of the year and second overall outing as the Padres try to end the series in the win column. Erlin earned the spot in the rotation after Josh Johnson landed on the DL. The southpaw went 3-3 in 11 games (9 starts) last season, posting a 4.12 ERA. He made an appearance in the game against the Dodgers last Wednesday, pitching 2/3 of an inning in relief. This will be his first career start...

Padres GM Josh Byrnes discusses Josh Johnson injury

Here's my notes from yesterday's interview Josh Byrnes Interview with Darren Smith (MP3) In the 5th inning of Josh Johnson's last start on Tuesday night he had his velocity drop off and he had some swelling in his elbow after the game.  He's felt better every day since, which is encouraging.  He's frustrated but determined to get through it.  He won't throw for two weeks.  "Sometimes these symptoms are nothing,  sometimes they're Tommy John, sometimes they're more flexor mass, more of a muscular issue."  There's a degree of unknown.  He already had Tommy John in 2007.  He had...

Josh Johnson Injured; Matt Wisler To Audition For His Spot

Free agent acquisition to spend time on the DL before even making his regular season debut with the Padres. Just as Padres seemed to be getting healthy (Chase Headley and Carlos Quentin have made Spring Training starts and Huston Street is pitching in games) news of another injury broke today. According to the San Diego Union Tribune's Dennis Lin (who I just met for the first time yesterday), the oft-injured starting pitcher Josh Johnson will be shut down for 10-14 days and will be out of commission for 4-5 weeks with a strained flexor tendon. With Opening Night just over a week away, that...

Padres 5, Mariners 5: Friars notch fourth tie of the Spring

Padres 5, Mariners 5: Friars notch fourth tie of the Spring

Another tie game is in the books for the Padres after they played their first night game of the season on Tuesday against the Mariners. Nine of the ten runs scored between the two teams came off relief pitching after veterans Josh Johnson and Randy Wolf each put up 4+ innings of work. Johnson allowed one run in the bottom of the 3rd on a leadoff homer by Brad Miller. But other than that he was nails, allowing only two more hits and striking out five through 4 1/3 frames. Our Padres couldn't get anything going off former Friar Randy Wolf, who only gave up two hits and two walks through 4...
