Padres' Pierce Johnson: Shifts to 60-day injured list

Johnson (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday. Johnson hit the 10-day injured list in late April with right elbow tendinitis, and while he remains without a clear timetable, he'll now be ineligible to return before late June. The move clears space on the 40-man roster for the Padres to claim Sergio Alcantara off waivers.

Padres to place RHP Pierce Johnson on injured list

Padres manager Bob Melvin told reporters, including Dennis Lin of The Athletic, that right-hander Pierce Johnson is going on the injured list with elbow tendinitis. Lefty Ray Kerr will be recalled to take his spot on the roster. After an excellent stint in Japan in 2019, Johnson was signed by...

Padres place Pierce Johnson on IL

The Los Angeles Dodgers placed Blake Treinen on the Injured List earlier today so it looked like the San Diego Padres were going to have an edge in terms of the talent at the back end of each team’s bullpens this weekend. The Padres back end now doesn’t look as great, as Pierce Johnson has been placed on the 10-day IL with elbow tendinitis. Ray Kerr, who was in Triple-A El Paso, has a locker at Petco Park and will replace Johnson for now on the roster.

Padres' Pierce Johnson: Heading to injured list

Johnson was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with right elbow tendinitis, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports. Johnson has recorded five holds with a 4.50 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 11:4 K:BB over six innings this season, but he's now sidelined by an elbow injury. Ray Kerr was promoted from Triple-A El Paso to replace him in San Diego's bullpen.

Padres' Pierce Johnson: Takes loss in relief

Johnson (0-1) was tagged with the loss in relief Friday against Atlanta after allowing three runs on four hits across two-thirds of an inning. He struck out two. Johnson recorded three holds and didn't give up a run in any of his first three outings of the season, but the wheels came off and he couldn't even finish the eighth inning after entering the game with a 2-2 tie. Johnson tossed 19 of his 28 pitches for strikes, but he simply had a rough day. One bad outing is not going to remove him from his high-leverage role, though, especially since he's posted an ERA below the 3.25 mark in each of his last two seasons.

Padres' Pierce Johnson: Dominates in Cactus League play

Johnson allowed one run (on a solo homer) over 3.1 innings this spring, and he racked up an 8:0 K:BB. The right-handed reliever gave up only one hit aside from the long ball, and he whiffed eight of the 12 batters he faced. Johnson established himself as one of the Padres' top bullpen arms with a solid 2021 campaign during which he posted a 3.22 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 11.8 K/9 across 58.2 frames. Robert Suarez is the most likely candidate to get save opportunities for the team early this season, but Johnson could enter consideration for the role if Suarez struggles.

Padres' Pierce Johnson: Returning to Padres

The Padres have exercised their $3 million option on Johnson for the 2022 season, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. The righty appeared in 63 games for San Diego in 2021, posting a 3.22 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in 58.2 innings. Johnson has put together consecutive strong seasons and is a bargain for the Padres at only $3 million.

Padres' Pierce Johnson: Takes loss in relief

Johnson (3-4) was tagged with the loss Sunday against Atlanta after allowing one run on one hit and one walk across one inning. Johnson pitched the sixth inning, and he gave up the game-winning run when Orlando Arcia doubled Joc Pederson home. Johnson has already made 10 appearances out of the bullpen for the Padres this month but the results have not been encouraging, and he's given up runs in five of his last seven trips to the mound. While he owns a 3.28 ERA on the season, that figure rises to 5.23 when accounting for his 10 outings in September.

Padres' Pierce Johnson: Pitches one inning, takes loss

Johnson (3-3) was tagged with the loss Tuesday against the Dodgers after allowing one run on one hit and a walk while fanning two across one inning. Johnson worked as the opener in this bullpen game but continued his season-long trend, as he hasn't pitched more than one inning in any of his 49 appearances on the year. Despite that fact, it's worth noting Johnson has recorded multiple strikeouts in six of his last eight outings and owns a 13:4 K:BB in 7.2 innings over that span.

Padres' Pierce Johnson: Named Tuesday's starter

Johnson will start Tuesday's game against the Dodgers. The right-hander has yet to log multiple frames during any of his 48 appearances this season, so it's unlikely that San Diego will ask him to work past the first inning. Nabil Crismatt figures to be a strong candidate to provide length after Johnson in what figures to be some form of a bullpen game. It's also possible the club makes a transaction prior to first pitch to have another multi-inning arm available.
