Johnson is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mets. Johnson will get a regular day of rest after making five straight starts at first base for Miami. The 31-year-old has gone hitless in the first two games of the series, but prior to that, was 12-for-44 (.273) at the plate since July 1. Miguel Rojas will draw the start in his stead Sunday.
Johnson went 2-for-3 with his fourth homer Wednesday against the Phillies. The long ball accounted for the only run the Marlins managed in a losing effort. Johnson's been seeing relatively steady playing time lately, but hasn't generally rewarded the Marlins with much offense. With Justin Bour (ankle) nearing a rehab assignment, Johnson's run of action could be coming to an end rather soon.
Johnson is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cardinals. After making four straight starts at first base, Johnson will get an apparent day off in favor of Don Kelly at first base. With Justin Bour (ankle) likely in need of a rehab assignment, Johnson should continue to see regular starts for roughly the remainder of the month.
Johnson is back in the lineup, playing first base and batting sixth, Saturday against Cincinnati, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports. After sitting out Friday's contest, Johnson returns to the starting lineup as Don Kelly gets a day off. Johnson struggled somewhat in June, going 11-for-48 (.229) in 23 games but is off to a solid start in July, slashing .333/.364/.333 over 21 at-bats this month.
Johnson piled up three hits, scored two runs and drove in one RBI during Monday's loss to the Mets. Johnson got a rare start against a right-hander with platoon-mate Justin Bour (ankle) ailing. He got the scoring kicked off with an RBI single off of Matt Harvey in the second inning. The veteran is slashing .246/.294/.343 over 134 at-bats this season while seeing the vast majority of his starts when a left-hander is on the mound.
