Josh Johnson, aiming for comeback, to have third Tommy John surgery
The 31-year-old Johnson is not giving up.
Johnson, who recently had a setback in his latest comeback attempt while on a rehab pitching assignment, is scheduling it soon, likely sometime next week.
Johnson, a former Marlins star, signed a one-year deal with the Padres over the winter after signing a one-year deal with them the year before, but he wasn't able to pitch either year. He is 58-45 lifetime with a 3.40 ERA and last pitched in the big leagues in 2013.
Johnson, at one time one of the better pitchers in the National League, led the NL with a 2.30 ERA in 2010.
