Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Pulled after 1.1 innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (4-4) allowed four runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out two across 1.1 innings as he was saddled with the loss Sunday against the White Sox.

Johnson was knocked around early, surrendering two runs in the first and two more in the second. He was removed from the ballgame after recording just four outs on 38 pitches (28 strikes). The 27-year-old lefty hasn't lasted past the fifth inning in his last three outings, allowing eight runs through 10 innings while striking out eight over that span. With Chris Sale (shoulder) hopeful to return sometime next weekend, Johnson could return to a bullpen role in the near future.

Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Overcomes first-inning trauma
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (4-3) allowed three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two over 5.2 innings to pick up the win in Friday's 7-3 victory over the Rays.

Johnson won his third straight start, but had to survive trouble in the first-inning when he couldn't command his curveball consistently. He ceded five baserunners and all three runs in the opening frame before setting down 15 of the final 17 batters faced. That gave Boston's bats the space to come back. It was another workmanlike performance worthy of a back-end starter. The left-hander has posted a 3.67 ERA over his last eight starts, spanning 41.2 innings. With Eduardo Rodriguez (ankle) set to go out on rehab, Johnson's stay in the rotation could be ending soon. He'll get at least one more start Wednesday at home against the Indians.

Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Set to start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will start Friday against the Rays, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.

The fact that Johnson pitched in Sunday's contest out of the bullpen ended his chances to start Wednesday in Philadelphia, but manager Alex Cora will instead deploy him Friday in the series opener with Tampa Bay. Johnson gave up five earned runs in his previous start, but he won his past two decisions and holds a 3.25 ERA over the team's last 60 games.

Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Candidate to start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson is available out of the bullpen Sunday against the Orioles, but he's still a candidate to start Wednesday against the Phillies, Bill Koch of the Providence Journal reports.

Johnson's spot in the rotation appears to be safe now that Drew Pomeranz is in the bullpen, but with off days on both Monday and Thursday, the club can afford to skip his turn in the rotation and add him to the bullpen for a bit. It's still unclear if Boston intends to deploy Johnson or Nathan Eovaldi on Wednesday, though that should become clearer in the coming days, especially if Johnson has to be used out of the bullpen Sunday.

Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Remains in rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will keep his spot in the Red Sox's rotation after the club decided to move Drew Pomeranz to the bullpen, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.

Due to Pomeranz's season-long struggles on the mound, Johnson will remain at the back-end of Boston's rotation for the time being. Johnson's past two starts have been some of his least effective on the year, as he's allowed nine earned runs -- including five home runs -- across 12 innings, though his ERA of 3.45 prior to those outings appropriately displayed his performance level in 2018. With scheduled off days coming Monday and Thursday, it remains to be seen whether Johnson will take the hill during the club's two-game set in Philadelphia next week, as manager Alex Cora may choose to skip him and line up Rick Porcello and Nathan Eovaldi instead.
