News: Johnson is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Orioles, according to's Bryan Hoch reports. Impact: Johnson will get the day off with left-hander Wei-Yin Chen on the bump for the Orioles. He will still likely sit often against left-handers, but until Mark Teixeira returns, he figures to be in the lineup -- either at first or second base -- almost anytime the Yankees face a right-hander.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson was 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run double in the Yankees' win over Toronto on Sunday afternoon. Impact: Playing first base for the injured Mark Teixeira, Johnson drove in a pair of first-inning runs to provide some early offensive support. Depending on how long Teixeira is out, the benefit here is that Johnson's time at first base could provide fantasy owners with more positional flexibility.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson got the start at first base for New York Saturday with Mark Teixeira being placed on the 15-day disabled list. Impact: Manager Joe Girardi says Johnson will get the bulk of the playing time in Teixeira's absence. Dean Anna, Francisco Cervelli and Yangervis Solarte could also see time at first.(STATS, 12:43pm)

News: Johnson will likely play first base until Mark Teixeira (hamstring) returns, according to ESPN. Impact: The Yankees don't have a true backup first baseman on the roster, which leaves Johnson as the starter by default. He was already the starting third baseman, so this won't change his playing time all that much but will add another position that he could qualify at, depending upon the amount of games he plays at first.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson is not in the lineup for Thursday's tilt with the Astros, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports. Impact: Johnson will give way to Yangervis Solarte at the hot corner on Thursday, but should still be considered the Yankees' primary third baseman moving forward.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson went 0-for-2 with three runners left on base before being replaced in Wednesday's loss to Houston in the seventh inning. Impact: No reason was given for Johnson's departure, thus it appears to be a tactical decision that was made to give Yangervis Solarte an opportunity to make his big league debut Wednesday after he replaced Eduardo Nunez on the Yankees' roster.(RotoWire, )
