Johnson out until Tuesday

If you’re watching the Yankees game right now, you might be wondering where Nick Johnson is as Jorge Posada is today’s DH. Well, yesterday we learned that the brittle Johnson was experiencing some seeminly minor stiffness in his lower back, so, to be safe, Joe Girardi has chosen to give him another day off. The Yankees also don’t play tomorrow, meaning that Johnson will actually receive three days off to recuperate. Hopefully the off-days will allow him to clear his head, too, given his offensive struggles.

One thought on “Johnson out until Tuesday

  1. Yup I’m watching, in frustration! Something really isn’t right with Vasquez and its annoying. Also Thames CANNOT field for his life, he froze in the field when the fly ball came to him and eventually dropped it for 2 runs to score.
