Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical:

Blue Jays RHP Johnson has inflammed triceps

The SportsXchange

Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Josh Johnson, who was scratched from his start Friday, looks to be back in the rotation next week after an MRI showed only inflammation in his right triceps.

"Just a little tiny bit of inflammation, and that's it," Johnson told reporters before Saturday's game against the New York Yankees. "All good news."

Johnson will play catch for the next two days before the team decides when he will make his next start.

The 29-year-old is 0-1 with a 6.86 ERA over four starts this year.
