by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Padres pitcher Josh Johnson dealing with elbow discomfort
by Sean D'Oliveira | CBS Sports Staff

Elbow discomfort caused Padres pitcher Josh Johnson to be removed from his rehab start last week, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Johnson is recovering from his second Tommy John surgery and will miss the rest of the season. He will consult Dr. James Andrews on Tuesday. 

"It's concerning, especially for a guy like Josh," assistant general manager Fred Uhlman Jr. said. "In my time here, he's worked as hard or harder than anybody to come back from these types of surgeries. From the training room to the weight room to the mound, he's put in a lot of effort. Until we see him, until our doctors take a look at him, we can't [update his status], but it’s disappointing for him because we were hoping to get him 25 pitches [on Friday] and go on to the next outing on Monday."

Padres SP Josh Johnson (elbow) to resume throwing program
by Ruben Palacios | CBS Sports Staff

Padres starting pitcher Josh Johnson, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, will resume his throwing program after an MRI on his elbow was inconclusive, per The San Diego Union-Tribune.

Johnson had the surgery over 14 months ago, but during a simulated game two weeks ago he felt tingling in his fingers and the outing was cut short.

"Because it's a revision, because the ligament had to be redone, the MRI's kind of inconclusive on the condition of the ligament," Padres manager Pat Murphy said Friday. "JJ felt some soreness when he was throwing last time he was throwing, so we shut him down.

"We're going to resume the rehab. He's going to begin throwing soon."

Murphy didn't provide an exact date on when Johnson would resume throwing.

"They don't know about the integrity of the ligament right now," Murphy said. "It's pretty complicated because it is a revision."

Padres SP Josh Johnson hopes to play catch this week
by Sean D'Oliveira | CBS Sports Staff

After experiencing soreness after throwing a bullpen session Tuesday, Padres pitcher Josh Johnson hopes to play catch sometime this week, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune.

"I just want to make sure and take it a little bit slower," Johnson said. "I said that from the beginning and it went so well that it’s kind of hard to do, is to take it slower than what it was. I might as well just continue to be patient, knowing that it’s still a long road."

Johnson is on the 60-day DL as he recovers from Tommy John surgery. He has not pitched this season.

"It's just kind of general soreness, nothing crazy, nothing that's, like, we're really, really worried about it," he said. "It's pretty much all gone. Once it's gone, we're going to take a couple extra days and just make sure we don't have that little setback."

"I just kind of went after it a little too much. ... Maybe just a little too much bulk and facing hitters for the first time facing hitters the adrenaline's going, so you're going to put a little more into it," Johnson said.

He added he took the week off just to get his body right and make sure everything was good to go.

"I think he came out of it fine, so that's a good sign," manager Bud Black said.
