Still no word yet on if he'll pitch June 1, but it sounds like the team is leaning toward having him miss two more starts and return during the next home stand at the earliest.RTWTH. I understand not wanting to rush Johnson back (better he misses an extra week in June than in September), but now I'm worried. Marlin Maniac didn't exactly help with his remote diagnosis, so now I have to hope Johnson is okay and Michael is a bad doctor/med student...
Johnson will play catch again tomorrow and then ramp up to long tossing and then a bullpen session.
But in order to be ready to start June 1, he said he’d have to throw a bullpen session "pretty quick. We'll see how it reacts in the next couple of days and well know more by then."
The Marlins don't sound like they want to rush him back.
