Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Saddled with loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (1-3) took the loss Saturday, allowing two unearned runs in five innings while giving up five hits and striking out five Tigers.

Both tallies Johnson allowed came in the second inning: Victor Martinez reached on a one-out throwing error before a single and a two-out double from Saturday star Jose Iglesias that plated the runners. Johnson lowered his ERA to 3.81 but, with a 7.8 K/9 and 2.8 BB/9, carries less-than-stellar command peripherals to back it up. With several Red Sox hurlers on the disabled list, however, Johnson should have at least a few more turns in the rotation, the next one lining up for Thursday against the Twins.

Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Struggles to throw strikes in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (hip) lasted 4.2 innings and didn't factor into the decision in his start Sunday in the Red Sox's 5-2 win over the Blue Jays. He allowed two runs on two hits and four walks and struck out five.

Johnson bounced back from a bout of hip inflammation to return from the 10-day disabled list in the minimum amount of time, but he didn't exhibit much command or control in his return to the mound. Both of the hits Johnson allowed went for extra bases -- including a two-run blast by Teoscar Hernandez in the third inning -- and he needed 84 pitches to retire 14 hitters. Despite the southpaw's middling results as a starter this season, he'll be guaranteed at least one more start July 21 against the Tigers, according to Matt Vautour of MassLive.com reports. If Johnson turns a corner in that outing, he'll have a good chance at earning an extended stay in the rotation with Eduardo Rodriguez (ankle) likely out until at least mid-August and Drew Pomeranz (biceps) and Steven Wright (knee) also on the disabled list.

Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Activated ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox officially activated Johnson (hip) from the 10-day disabled list ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Blue Jays, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.

To clear room on the active roster for Johnson, Boston optioned fellow starter Eduardo Rodriguez (ankle) to the DL. Since it's unknown if Rodriguez's injury will keep him sidelined beyond the minimum amount of time or if Drew Pomeranz (biceps) will be ready to return from the DL when a fifth starter is first needed after the All-Star break, Johnson could earn an additional turn or two through the rotation beyond Sunday.

Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Will start Sunday vs. Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (hip) will be activated from the 10-day disabled list and is scheduled to start Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.

As anticipated, Johnson will be ready to come off the DL in the minimum 10 days after being shut down last week with left hip inflammation. Johnson's injury cleared the way for Hector Velazquez to make a three-inning spot start as part of a bullpen game Tuesday against the Rangers, but Velazquez has since returned to a relief role. Johnson, who carries a 4.23 ERA and 1.48 WHIP over 24 appearances (three starts) this season, could be dropped from the rotation after the All-Star break if Drew Pomeranz (biceps) is deemed healthy enough to return from the DL.

Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Bullpen scheduled Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (hip) participated in pitcher's fielding practice Tuesday ahead of a scheduled bullpen session Wednesday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

Johnson landed on the 10-day disabled list over the weekend, but the transaction is retroactive to July 5, so he could return before the All-Star break. If he comes out of Wednesday's session without incident, he's the likely starter for Sunday against the Blue Jays.
