Toronto Blue Jays' pitcher Josh Johnson received some relatively good news on an MRI on this right arm on Thursday.  Although his season may be in jeopardy, the MRI revealed only a strain to his forearm. As reported by Evan Peaslee of MLB.com, Johnson aggravated the injury while playing catch before Tuesday's game against the Red Sox.  He was played on the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday. The results are good news because Johnson would be able to pitch next season without having to undergo surgery. Johnson underwent Tommy John surgery in 2007, and has no concerns that the current injury is any worse than first anticipated. "No. It's kind of exactly where it was.  Kind of away from all the repair and everything [from 2007]. Never felt anything in there." As a precaution, the Blue Jays are having Dr. James Andrews, a renowned specialist when it comes to pitching injuries, view the MRI results. "I think they do that almost every time," Johnson said. "Just to get another set of eyes on it, especially his. He's been around and knows a lot about the elbow." Johnson has a career record of 58-45 with a 3.40 earned run average. He has struggled to a record of 2-8 with a 6.20 earned run average this season. If the initial MRI results are confirmed by Dr. Andrews, it will be excellent news for Johnson, a free agent at the end of the season.
