Padres' Josh Johnson getting closer to throwing in bullpen
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Padres starting pitcher Josh Johnson (elbow) said Thursday he could throw a bullpen session as early as next week, but he added the following week is more likely, per U-T San Diego.

"I pushed my bullpen back a week last time, and that helped," Johnson said.

Johnson, who underwent Tommy John surgery last April, is currently long-tossing at 180 feet three times a week. He plans to stretch out to more than 200 feet next week before throwing to a catcher on flat ground.

Manager Bud Black said the team has been targeting the first couple weeks of March for the veteran right-hander to begin throwing off a mound. Johnson is still not expected to start throwing in games until late May or June.

Padres' Black: Josh Johnson likely won't be back until June
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Padres manager Bud Black gave a conservative estimate Thursday on the expected return of starting pitcher Josh Johnson, who missed the 2014 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in April.

"With [Josh Johnson], he's probably not due back until mid-to-late May, early June... let's say June 1," Black said, per MLB.com.

The 31-year-old Johnson has made at least 30 starts just twice in his career. He is 58-45 with a 3.40 ERA over nine MLB seasons.
