No structural damage for Josh Johnson
Johnson has been out since May 16. His agent, Matt Sosnick, says the right-hander had an MRI on Wednesday and was examined by Dr. James Andrews at his office in Birmingham, Ala.
Johnson received a cortisone shot and won't throw for 10 days. He's expected to rejoin the rotation sometime after the All-Star break.
The star pitcher was 3-1 with a 1.64 ERA before being sidelined. In his absence, the Marlins have gone into a June swoon that sank them to last place in the NL East.
