Josh Johnson was originally scheduled to pitch against the Texas Rangers on Saturday, but the Toronto Blue Jays have decided to push him back a day due to a blister that has developed on his right middle finger, according to Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com. The blister developed during Johnson’s most recent start, which came against the Rangers on June 9. He received treatment during the outing and continued pitching through the blister before he was ultimately removed from the game after the fifth inning due to his pitch count. To fill in for Johnson, the Blue Jays have moved right-hander R.A. Dickey up a day, and he’ll now take the mound Saturday rather than Sunday. Dickey will actually be pitching on normal rest considering Wednesday’s rainout. Johnson has been one of the many disappointments for the Jays this season. The 29-year-old was acquired as a top-of-the-rotation starter from the Miami Marlins this offseason along with Mark Buehrle, Emilio Bonifacio and Jose Reyes. However, Johnson is still in search of his first win of the season, as he’s 0-2 thus far with a 5.40 ERA over six starts. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
