Just Shoot Me Now Please

Johnson may have hit another bump in the road to recovery from his right shoulder injury, experiencing stiffness in his recovering throwing shoulder. He will have his shoulder examined by renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday.

Marlins President of Baseball Operations Larry Beinfest told the Miami Herald this week, "He threw a [bullpen session] on Friday and reported a little bit more stiffness and just didn't feel right," leading to the decision to take another look at the shoulder.
The worst seven words in baseball are "to be examined by Dr. James Andrews."

UPDATE: Step away from the ledge everyone.
An MRI and examination found no structural damage in Johnson's right shoulder. He will not resume his throwing program for at least 10 days.

Johnson also received a cortisone shot. More important, he was told that "there's nothing that should prevent him from throwing again this year," according to a person close to JJ.
