Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Hopeful to return before break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson downplayed the inflamed left hip that resulted in his placement on the 10-day disabled list Sunday and expects to rejoin the Red Sox before the All-Star break, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.

Johnson stressed that the hip injury didn't affect him during his third start of the season July 3 against the Nationals, with the right-hander instead indicating he didn't experience any soreness until waking up the next day. Despite being moved to the DL, Johnson was still able to play catch off flat ground Sunday and could throw a bullpen session within a few days. If all goes well, Johnson would likely line up for a return to the rotation July 15 in the club's final game of the first half. The Red Sox will need a replacement starter for Johnson on Tuesday against the Rangers, with long reliever Hector Velazquez representing the leading candidate to fill the opening.

Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Hits DL with hip inflammation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox placed Johnson on the 10-day disabled list Sunday with left hip inflammation, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

The transaction is retroactive to July 5, but the timing of the injury likely means that the Red Sox won't bring Johnson back from the DL until after the All-Star break. Johnson had been serving as Boston's fifth starter for the last two turns through the rotation, conceding three runs on 11 hits and three walks over 8.2 innings in those contests. The Red Sox recalled William Cuevas from Triple-A Pawtucket in a corresponding move and could turn to him to make a spot start Monday against the Rangers, when Johnson's next turn is scheduled to come up.

Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Pitches 4.2 innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson allowed two runs on eight hits and two walks over 4.2 innings during Tuesday's 11-2 win over the Nationals. He struck out two and did not factor in the decision.

The Nationals had plenty of traffic on the bases and Johnson exited an out short of qualifying for the win. The 27-year-old could see another turn in the Red Sox's starting rotation with Steven Wright (knee) and Drew Pomeranz (biceps) still on the disabled list, with his next start likely to come Monday against the Rangers.

Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will start Tuesday's game against the Nationals, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

Johnson went four innings as a fill-in starter for Steven Wright (knee) last Thursday, and manager Alex Cora feels the left-hander could get up to five innings Tuesday. This could be the last start for Johnson with Drew Pomeranz (biceps) nearing a return. He owns a 4.28 ERA and 7.9 K/9 in 40 innings for Boston on the season.

Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Pitches well in four innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson allowed one earned run on three hits and a walk while striking out two across four innings Thursday against the Angels. He did not factor into the decision.

Johnson's only earned run came on a home run by Andrelton Simmons, but he was forced out after only 61 pitches in his start in place of Steven Wright because he hadn't been fully stretched out. Across his past three appearances, Johnson had not surpassed 43 pitches, so the Red Sox took a cautious approach. Wright is eligible to return from the disabled list July 3 -- it is unclear if he will do so -- so Johnson's time in the rotation may be short-lived.
