Back, shoulder ailing Josh Johnson
The All-Star right-hander stopped a bullpen session early on Tuesday because of discomfort in his back. Manager Edwin Rodriguez said after the 8-7 loss to the Phillies that Johnson will return home to be examined.
Johnson is 11-6 with a 2.30 ERA. He is 2-3 with a 3.50 ERA since the All-Star break.
