Days after going on DL, Johnson to undergo surgery

TORONTO -- Blue Jays left fielder Reed Johnson will undergo
surgery Tuesday to repair a herniated disk in his lower back.

Johnson, who will have the operation in Florida, was placed on
the 15-day disabled list Friday. The team hopes to get him back
sometime in July.


Johnson is hitting .265 this season with a home run and seven
RBIs. Adam Lind will start in left while Johnson is out.
