Josh Johnson: Retiring from baseball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson plans to retire from baseball rather than pursue a minor league opportunity with the Giants, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reports.

Johnson's career will go down as a large what-if, an arm with a significant amount of both talent and ailments. The 32-year-old won an ERA title back in 2010 with the Marlins and had established himself as one of the league's best young pitchers, but an unrelenting series of injuries led to him throwing his final major league pitch in 2013. Now, after undergoing a third Tommy John surgery, Johnson is hanging up the cleats.

Giants' Josh Johnson: Signs minor league deal with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson and the Giants have agreed to a minor league deal, MiLB Roster Tracker reports.

Johnson hasn't appeared in an MLB game since 2013 and is coming off a third Tommy John surgery. The right-hander was among the best in the majors when he was healthy, but those days are long gone and his stuff has almost certainly been diminished by all the surgeries he's undergone. This is a pure lottery ticket for the Giants.
