Johnson progressing

Sounds like Josh woke up yesterday morning feeling fine.

Right-hander Josh Johnson (irritated ulnar nerve in right elbow) will start for Class AA Carolina on Friday. He could make his debut in two weeks.

I don't know if we can convince HadMatter to make the trip up to Carolina to give us another scouting report or not.  But hey, it's worth a try.  He probably needs a vacation away and all he has to do is take Friday off.  And I'm sure we can get Fishfan24 to write him a doctor's note.  I think the plan is starting to come together.

As for Johnson, I bet it will be a little longer than two weeks.  Could be wrong, but I think to build up his arm strength it will require more time than that.
