Blogging About Baseball

162 games, even more blogs. From college to the minors to the pros. It's all here.

The forgotten fish.

There were some excellent pitching performances today. Zack Greinke and Yovani Gallardo’s complete games, Johan Santana’s 10 K performance, the Blue Jay’s staff shutout.

And then there was the Marlin’s Josh Johnson, the forgotten pitcher from April 24.

Johnson is incredible. Sporting a 2.20 ERA coming into tonight’s game, the dude is absolutely blowing through lineups (excluding that horrendous start against the Nationals) at an incredible rate. Tonight he pitched seven extremely solid innings, amassing 8 K’s and only walking two. He credits an improved change up with his success.

7 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 8 SO.

Johnson showed this promise once before, winning 12 games in 2006 while posting a 3.10 ERA. However, elbow surgery sidelined him for almost all of 2007 and much of 2008.

He’s showing that promise once again. Keep an eye out.
