  • Padres' Pierce Johnson: May return in second half of August

    Johnson (elbow) is aiming to return from the 60-day injured list in mid-to-late August after recently easing back into his throwing program following a brief shutdown period, MLB.com reports. Johnson, who has been on the IL since late April with right elbow tightness, appeared to be trending toward throwing live batting practices coming out of the All-Star break, but the Padres pulled him off his progression after he experienced lingering soreness. He's since started to ramp up again, and he looks like he could be ready to face hitters by next week, if not within the next few days. Depending on how he fares during his eventual minor-league rehab assignment, Johnson could re-emerge as a key setup man for the Padres down the stretch.

  • Padres' Pierce Johnson: Returns to mound

    Johnson (elbow) has begun throwing bullpen sessions, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports. Johnson has been on the injured list since April 22 due to right elbow tendinitis, and he wasn't able to resume throwing from a mound until the past week. The right-handed reliever should provide a shot in the arm to the Padres' bullpen upon his return, but that likely won't happen until after the All-Star break. Johnson posted a 4.50 ERA and 1.67 WHIP while recording an 11:4 K:BB over six innings prior to his placement on the IL.

  • Padres' Pierce Johnson: Trending toward post-break return

    Johnson (elbow) has resumed playing catch from about 90 feet, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Johnson will need to increase his throwing distance to about 120 feet before he's cleared to resume mound work. The 31-year-old isn't expected to be ready to return from the 60-day injured list until after the All-Star break.

  • Padres' Pierce Johnson: Still not throwing

    Johnson (elbow) hasn't yet resumed throwing but may do so in mid-June, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports. It's been a slow recovery for the right-hander, who was placed on the injured list April 22 and was at one point considered a candidate to resume throwing in early June. That timeline has been pushed back a bit, but it's still feasible that Johnson could return to the Padres before the end of the month. The veteran reliever will almost certainly need to go on a minor-league rehab assignment given the length of his absence.

  • Padres' Pierce Johnson: Could resume throwing soon

    Johnson (elbow) could start throwing again in early June, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports. Johnson has yet to throw since landing on the injured list April 22 with right elbow tendinitis, but he appears to be on the verge of taking that step as he looks to work his way back into action. The right-hander will likely need a ramp-up period before rejoining the Padres' bullpen, and he isn't eligible to be activated until late June. Johnson notched five holds and posted an 11:4 K:BB over six innings before he went down with the injury.

  • Padres' Pierce Johnson: Shifts to 60-day injured list

    Johnson (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday. Johnson hit the 10-day injured list in late April with right elbow tendinitis, and while he remains without a clear timetable, he'll now be ineligible to return before late June. The move clears space on the 40-man roster for the Padres to claim Sergio Alcantara off waivers.

  • Padres' Pierce Johnson: Heading to injured list

    Johnson was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with right elbow tendinitis, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports. Johnson has recorded five holds with a 4.50 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 11:4 K:BB over six innings this season, but he's now sidelined by an elbow injury. Ray Kerr was promoted from Triple-A El Paso to replace him in San Diego's bullpen.

  • Padres' Pierce Johnson: Notches fourth hold

    Johnson earned a hold against the Reds on Monday, pitching a perfect inning during which he struck out one. The right-hander entered in the eighth inning to serve as a bridge to closer Taylor Rogers. Johnson did well in his outing, retiring all three batters he faced on 17 pitches. He has a 5.40 ERA due to one poor outing but has allowed no runs in four of his five appearances overall. Johnson is tied for the MLB lead with four holds on the season.

  • Padres' Pierce Johnson: Takes loss in relief

    Johnson (0-1) was tagged with the loss in relief Friday against Atlanta after allowing three runs on four hits across two-thirds of an inning. He struck out two. Johnson recorded three holds and didn't give up a run in any of his first three outings of the season, but the wheels came off and he couldn't even finish the eighth inning after entering the game with a 2-2 tie. Johnson tossed 19 of his 28 pitches for strikes, but he simply had a rough day. One bad outing is not going to remove him from his high-leverage role, though, especially since he's posted an ERA below the 3.25 mark in each of his last two seasons.

  • Padres' Pierce Johnson: Dominates in Cactus League play

    Johnson allowed one run (on a solo homer) over 3.1 innings this spring, and he racked up an 8:0 K:BB. The right-handed reliever gave up only one hit aside from the long ball, and he whiffed eight of the 12 batters he faced. Johnson established himself as one of the Padres' top bullpen arms with a solid 2021 campaign during which he posted a 3.22 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 11.8 K/9 across 58.2 frames. Robert Suarez is the most likely candidate to get save opportunities for the team early this season, but Johnson could enter consideration for the role if Suarez struggles.

  • Padres' Pierce Johnson: Returning to Padres

    The Padres have exercised their $3 million option on Johnson for the 2022 season, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. The righty appeared in 63 games for San Diego in 2021, posting a 3.22 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in 58.2 innings. Johnson has put together consecutive strong seasons and is a bargain for the Padres at only $3 million.

  • Padres' Pierce Johnson: Takes loss in relief

    Johnson (3-4) was tagged with the loss Sunday against Atlanta after allowing one run on one hit and one walk across one inning. Johnson pitched the sixth inning, and he gave up the game-winning run when Orlando Arcia doubled Joc Pederson home. Johnson has already made 10 appearances out of the bullpen for the Padres this month but the results have not been encouraging, and he's given up runs in five of his last seven trips to the mound. While he owns a 3.28 ERA on the season, that figure rises to 5.23 when accounting for his 10 outings in September.

  • Padres' Pierce Johnson: Opening in bullpen game

    Padres manager Jayce Tingler said Johnson would serve as the team's opening pitcher in a bullpen game Thursday in San Francisco, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports. Over the past four days, Johnson has made two relief appearances and tossed 33 pitches in total, so the Padres likely won't ask him to cover more than one or two innings Thursday before turning the game over to the bullpen. The Padres don't have an obvious primary pitcher to follow Johnson, making it difficult to predict which reliever is most likely to factor into a decision.

  • Padres' Pierce Johnson: Pitches one inning, takes loss

    Johnson (3-3) was tagged with the loss Tuesday against the Dodgers after allowing one run on one hit and a walk while fanning two across one inning. Johnson worked as the opener in this bullpen game but continued his season-long trend, as he hasn't pitched more than one inning in any of his 49 appearances on the year. Despite that fact, it's worth noting Johnson has recorded multiple strikeouts in six of his last eight outings and owns a 13:4 K:BB in 7.2 innings over that span.

  • Padres' Pierce Johnson: Named Tuesday's starter

    Johnson will start Tuesday's game against the Dodgers. The right-hander has yet to log multiple frames during any of his 48 appearances this season, so it's unlikely that San Diego will ask him to work past the first inning. Nabil Crismatt is a candidate to provide length after Johnson in what figures to be some form of a bullpen game. It's also possible the club makes a transaction prior to first pitch to have another multi-inning arm available.

  • Padres' Pierce Johnson: Activated from injured list

    Johnson (triceps) was activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Tuesday's game against the Reds. Johnson was placed on the IL with triceps inflammation June 19 but was able to throw a bullpen a week later. He's now set to rejoin the San Diego bullpen after a minimal stay on the IL. The right-hander holds a 3.57 ERA and 32:9 K:BB across 22.2 innings this season.

  • Padres' Pierce Johnson: Lands on IL

    The Padres placed Johnson on the 10-day injured list Saturday with right triceps inflammation. Johnson presumably suffered the injury during his outing Thursday, when he retired one batter and earned the win against the Reds. With a 3.57 ERA in 22.2 innings this season, the righty has been a valuable bullpen piece for the Padres. Daniel Camarena was called up Saturday to replace Johnson on the active roster.

  • Padres' Pierce Johnson: Grabs second win

    Johnson (2-2) retired the only batter he faced and earned the win over Cincinnati on Thursday. Mark Melancon allowed four runs in two-thirds of an inning before Johnson recorded the third out in the ninth. San Diego's offense answered with a four-run inning of its own, which gave Johnson his second win of the season. The right-hander has a 3.57 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 32:9 K:BB across 22.2 innings. He's added three holds and a blown save across 27 outings, although he mainly sees lower-leverage assignments.

  • Padres' Pierce Johnson: Charged with loss

    Johnson (1-2) allowed two runs on two walks with one strikeout in two-thirds of an inning to take the loss Wednesday against the Cubs. Johnson walked Nick Martini and Joc Pederson to start the fifth inning. He was able to retire the next two batters, but Tim Hill allowed both inherited runners to score on an Anthony Rizzo double. Wednesday was the second time in 20 outings Johnson has been charged with multiple runs. He's posted a 3.63 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 27:8 K:BB across 17.1 innings, mainly in low-leverage assignments.

  • Padres' Pierce Johnson: Scoops first win in extras

    Johnson struck out three of the four batters he faced in a scoreless 10th inning to pick up the win Tuesday in the Padres' 2-1 victory over the Rockies. Johnson was dominant in his 16-pitch appearance. He pumped in 11 of his offerings for strikes and drew swings and misses, while four of the five balls he threw came on an intentional walk. With a 3.38 ERA and 12.8 K/9 over his 15 appearances this season, Johnson appears to be gaining the trust of manager Jayce Tingler in high-leverage spots.
