Red Sox's Brian Johnson: To work as reliever in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will be tried out as a reliever in 2018, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Johnson split time between Triple-A Pawtucket and the Red Sox last season, compiling a 3.09 ERA in 17 starts for the PawSox and a 4.33 ERA in five starts for the big club. While he's worked solely as a starting pitcher through his first six seasons, the Red Sox -- who are in need of left-handed bullpen depth -- are set to try the 26-year-old southpaw out in a relief role. Johnson is expected to make the big club out of spring given he's out of options, so having him as a relief arm with the capability to spot start makes sense for a Red Sox team that is comfortable with their current starting rotation. At this point, it's unclear if the transition is a long-term move or simply for the 2018 season.

Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Returns after injury scare
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson is slated to start Saturday for Triple-A Pawtucket.

A line drive caught Johnson in the leg during his Aug. 16 start, forcing him from the game after just one inning, but he returned to action five days later. He figures to make two more starts (including Saturday's) before rejoining the big club in September, but it's uncertain if Johnson will start at all for the first-place Red Sox over the season's final month. Johnson recently battled some shoulder fatigue and an assignment to the bullpen would be theoretically help preserve the shoulder.

Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Exits start after one inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was removed from Wednesday's minor-league game after being hit in the leg by a comebacker, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Johnson hadn't allowed a hit before exiting the game after being pegged by a liner in the first inning. This is a tough break for Johnson, as the southpaw just recently rejoined Triple-A Pawtucket's rotation after being shut down with shoulder fatigue. The severity of his injury isn't known at this point, but expect an update following the conclusion of Wednesday's contest.

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

Johnson has rejoined the rotation at Triple-A Pawtucket after being shut down with shoulder fatigue.

Johnson has allowed two runs over two starts (nine innings) since returning from the shoulder issue that cost him one turn in the rotation. With David Price (elbow) sidelined, the left-handed Johnson is an option as a fifth starter if the Red Sox feel Doug Fister, who was hit hard in Monday's loss to Cleveland, isn't working out.

Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Could rejoin Pawtucket rotation Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Triple-A Pawtucket manager Kevin Boles said Johnson (shoulder) could be cleared to start for the club Saturday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Johnson hasn't pitched for Pawtucket since July 23 due to left shoulder inflammation, but the worst of the injury appears to be behind. The southpaw threw a bullpen session Wednesday, and assuming he feels fine a day later, he'll likely be added back to Pawtucket's starting schedule. Over 11 starts at the Triple-A level this season, Johnson has submitted a 2.84 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in 63.1 innings.
