The San Francisco Giants and few media outlets have confirmed that Josh Johnson is making another MLB and has signed with the San Francisco Giants.
It has been three very long years since we have seen Josh Johnson pitch in the majors, but he will get a chance to showcase his skills with the San Francisco Giants. As mentioned before Josh Johnson has been out of baseball for the last three years due to him recovering from his third Tommy John Surgery.
Some might say two Tommy John Surgery’s is likely a career, but three and you’re attempting another comeback? God speed to Josh Johnson.
Josh Johnson was last heard of in baseball back in 2015 when he was a member of the San Diego Padres. At the time we last heard of Josh he was dealing with tightness in his ribs, he was dealing with neck issues and then he will later announce he will take on another TJS and miss the 2016 season.
Josh Johnson, 32, is a shell of his former self and has not posted up the numbers he once did as a member of the Florida now Miami Marlins. On a personal note here I think if Johnson wants to return to baseball I would like for him to return as a pitcher out of the bullpen. If the San Francisco keeps Johnson around and he impresses during camp, he won’t be placed in the rotation, he will likely land a bullpen role, one of the Giants weakness’s on the team. The Giants could look to add mid-inning relief pitching in free agency, but lets see how Josh Johnson returns and comes along adjusting to his new threads with the Giants.
