SDSan Diego Padres
2015 Record: 50-53
#55 Josh Johnson
Jul 27: Johnson (elbow) is preparing to rejoin the Padres in a relief role as he works his way through the rehab process, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Johnson resumed playing catch from 60 feet over the weekend, after a setback earlier this season further delayed his return from a second Tommy John operation. With Johnson having yet to pitch in a competitive setting since 2013 with the Blue Jays, at this point, it appears the 31-year-old just wants to get back on the mound in some capacity, and relieving won't require as arduous of a rehabilitation. Johnson is expected to steadily increase his catching distance in the coming days and remains hopeful that he'll be healthy enough to join the big club by September.
