More surgery for Nick Johnson

In the visiting dugout of the Rogers Centre this afternoon, Joe Girardi had already talked about Phil Hughes and Alfredo Aceves and Nick Swisher when he suddenly had an oh-by-the-way moment.

He stopped the conversation to make this announcement: Nick Johnson is having wrist surgery again.

Girardi didn’t know any of the details, and frankly the details could not have mattered less. Johnson is a heckuva nice guy and he’s been a good hitter in his career, but a second surgery was hardly stop-the-presses news. I don’t think anyone was expecting him back at this point, anyway.

Pretty stunning when the Yankees Opening Day designated hitter has a second surgery, and no one is caught off guard.
