Johnson headed for third Tommy John
SAN DIEGO— The San Diego Padres say right-hander Josh Johnson, sidelined for two seasons, will have a third reconstructive elbow surgery. Johnson had Tommy John surgery in 2007, and in 2014 after straining his elbow during spring training. Johnson hasn’t thrown a pitch in the regular season for the Padres. He was an all-star with Miami in 2009 and 2010, but was slowed by triceps and forearm injuries in 2013 with Toronto. He has a career record of 58-45 with a 3.40 ERA.
