Signs pointing to surgery for Johnson

Sam called me on my way to the stadium saying he’d heard a rumor that the Yankees had already scheduled Nick Johnson’s surgery. By the time I got to the park and settled in for a phone call to Brian Cashman, Ken Rosenthal was reporting that Johnson’s surgery will be tomorrow and likely keep him out of the mix until July.

Still waiting for official confirmation from the Yankees, but where there’s smoke, there’s usually an extended DL stint for the Yankees designated hitter.

Juan Miranda has been hitting in Triple-A for two years now, waiting for an opportunity to prove himself at the big league level. This seems to be that opportunity. He’s in New York now and could get a long look.
