      Padres pitcher Josh Johnson dealing with elbow discomfort

      Elbow discomfort caused Padres pitcher Josh Johnson to be removed from his rehab start last week, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune. Johnson is recovering from his second Tommy John surgery and will miss the rest of the season. He will consult Dr. James Andrews on Tuesday. "It's concerning, especially for a guy like Josh," assistant general manager Fred Uhlman Jr. said. "In my time here, he's worked as hard or harder than anybody to come back from these types of surgeries. From the training room to the weight room to the mound, he's put in a lot of effort. Until we see him, until our doctors take a look at him, we can't [update his status], but it's disappointing for him because we were hoping to get him 25 pitches [on Friday] and go on to the next outing on Monday."

      Padres SP Josh Johnson (elbow) to resume throwing program

      Padres starting pitcher Josh Johnson, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, will resume his throwing program after an MRI on his elbow was inconclusive, per The San Diego Union-Tribune. Johnson had the surgery over 14 months ago, but during a simulated game two weeks ago he felt tingling in his fingers and the outing was cut short. "Because it's a revision, because the ligament had to be redone, the MRI's kind of inconclusive on the condition of the ligament," Padres manager Pat Murphy said Friday. "JJ felt some soreness when he was throwing last time he was throwing, so we shut him down. "We're going to resume the rehab. He's going to begin throwing soon." Murphy didn't provide an exact date on when Johnson would resume throwing. "They don't know about the integrity of the ligament right now," Murphy said. "It's pretty complicated because it is a revision."
