Rays' DJ Johnson: Moves to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Johnson landed on the injured list with a sprained right shoulder Aug. 10, and manager Kevin Cash said the right-hander will miss "significant time." As a result, it's not very surprising to see the 31-year-old move to the 60-day IL, which will force him to miss the remainder of the regular season. Whether Johnson could be available for the postseason remains to be seen, but right-hander Chris Ellis' contract was selected as part of Monday's transaction.

Rays' DJ Johnson: Will miss 'substantial time'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Kevin Cash said Tuesday that Johnson's sprained right shoulder is "pretty severe" and that the right hander will likely miss "substantial time," Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Johnson was placed on the injured list earlier Tuesday. The right-hander is slated to get a second opinion on the injury, but for the time being, it sounds like he won't be pitching in a big-league game any time soon. While the Rays haven't provided a specific recovery timeline, Cash's comments would suggest there's at least a chance that Johnson's season is over.

Rays' DJ Johnson: Goes on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays placed Johnson on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a sprained right shoulder.

Tampa Bay initially feared that Johnson might be dealing with structural damage to his shoulder after the right-hander experienced a cracking sensation during his appearance Sunday against the Orioles, but follow-up tests revealed that he was dealing with a sprain instead. The Rays haven't provided a timeline for Johnson's return to action, but the reliever will presumably need more than the minimum 10 days to recover from the injury. Louis Head was called up from Triple-A Durham to take Johnson's spot in the bullpen.

Rays' DJ Johnson: Leaves with shoulder discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was removed from Sunday's game against the Orioles with right shoulder discomfort, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Johnson fell to the ground after sailing a pitch to the backstop during the sixth inning and was pulled from the contest. He recorded two outs without allowing a baserunner before suffering the injury.

Rays' DJ Johnson: Moves up to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays recalled Johnson from Triple-A Durham on Sunday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

After he was acquired from Cleveland on Friday, Johnson never appeared in a game for Durham before he was summoned to the big club. He'll join the Tampa Bay bullpen as a replacement for Jeffrey Springs (knee), who was placed on the injured list in a corresponding move. Johnson is expected to work mainly in lower-leverage spots while he's up with the Rays.

Rays' DJ Johnson: Traded to Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson and outfielder Jordan Luplow were traded from Cleveland to Tampa Bay on Friday in exchange for right-hander Peyton Battenfield, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Johnson made his big-league debut in early July and surrendered a run over 1.2 frames while recording three strikeouts. The right-hander has a 3.32 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 35:11 K:BB across 21 appearances at the Triple-A level this season.

Indians' DJ Johnson: Sent down Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Monday.

Johnson's contract was selected by Cleveland July 7, and he allowed one run on two hits and no walks while striking out three in 1.2 innings in his lone relief appearance with the big-league club. He'll return to the minors after J.C. Mejia was recalled from Triple-A Columbus in a corresponding move.

Indians' DJ Johnson: Contract selected Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson's contract was selected by Cleveland on Wednesday.

Johnson spent the 2020 season in Japan's Nippon Professional Baseball but signed a minor-league deal with Cleveland during the offseason. He's made 17 relief appearances at Triple-A Columbus and posted a 3.63 ERA and 29:10 K:BB in 17.1 innings. The right-hander previously logged major-league appearances with the Rockies in 2018 and 2019, but he'll now be in line to make his team debut with Cleveland. He should serve mainly as a low-leverage reliever going forward. Left-hander Logan Allen was sent down as part of a corresponding move.

Indians' D.J. Johnson: Dispatched to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cleveland reassigned Johnson to their minor-league camp Tuesday.

After spending the 2020 season in Japan's Nippon Professional Baseball, Johnson returned stateside this winter and inked a minor-league deal with Cleveland. The 31-year-old right-hander was roughed up in his five Cactus League appearances, giving up five runs on six hits and seven walks over 4.2 innings. He'll likely open the 2021 season at Triple-A Columbus.

Indians' D.J. Johnson: Joins Indians
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson signed a minor-league deal with Cleveland on Tuesday that includes an invitation to big-league camp.

The 31-year-old spent the 2020 campaign in Japan and posted a 3.35 ERA over 40.1 innings, but he's returning stateside for the 2021 season. Johnson appeared in 28 games for the Rockies in 2019 and had a 5.04 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 24:19 K:BB across 25 innings.

D.J. Johnson: Let go by Colorado
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was released by the Rockies on Wednesday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Johnson spent the majority of the season compiling a 5.63 ERA with Triple-A Albuquerque, and he didn't fare much better in his 28 major-league appearances with a 5.04 ERA and 1.68 WHIP. According to Harding, the 30-year-old is expected to continue his career in Japan.

Rockies' D.J. Johnson: Recalled by Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was recalled by the Rockies on Wednesday.

Johnson has thrown 14.1 innings for the Rockies this season but hasn't had much success. He's posted a 7.53 ERA, and his 2.16 WHIP and 13:14 K:BB don't suggest that sudden improvement is imminent.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rockies' D.J. Johnson: Heading to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

Rockies' D.J. Johnson: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was recalled by the Rockies on Saturday.

Johnson's time in the minors will last less than a week after he was optioned Monday. He had a 5.59 ERA in 9.2 innings for the Rockies prior to his original demotion. He's back in the bullpen after Harrison Musgrave landed on the injured list with a flexor strain.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday.

Johnson spent the first month of the season in the big leagues but didn't fare particularly well, throwing 9.2 innings with a 5.59 ERA and a 9:9 K:BB. Kyle Freeland (finger) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bud Black said Saturday that Johnson made the Opening Day roster, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Johnson made his MLB debut in September and followed that with a strong spring training in which he allowed one run and five hits over 8.2 innings. The 29-year-old is likely to serve in a low-leverage role out of the bullpen.
