Johnson (forearm) was reinstated from the 7-day disabled list Tuesday. Johnson underwent surgery in April to repair a broken ulna bone in his forearm, but has looked good in seven rehab games with High-A Aberdeen and appears ready to return to Triple-A Norfolk. The 32-year-old re-signed with the Orioles on a minor-league deal this offseason and will continue serving as organizational depth.
Johnson (forearm) will begin a rehab stint with short-season Aberdeen on Monday, David Hall of The Virginian-Pilot reports. The plan is for Johnson to spend 7-to-8 days with the IronBirds before returning to Triple-A Norfolk. The veteran infielder has been sidelined since April 9, but it seems like a return to action is on the horizon barring any extraneous circumstances.

Johnson (forearm) underwent successful surgery Tuesday to repair his broken right forearm, David Hall of The Virginian-Pilot reports.

Johnson suffered a broken ulna bone after being hit by a pitch on his right forearm in Saturday's game with Triple-A Norfolk, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports. He was placed on the 7-day disabled list and is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks. Johnson, who signed a minor-league deal with the Orioles in February, was hit by a pitch in spring training that sent him to the X-ray room, too. Unfortunately for the 32-year-old, Saturday's results didn't come back with positive news like the previous report. The injury likely dashes any hope Johnson had of receiving a promotion to the big leagues in the near future.
