Brian Johnson Placed On 10-Day DL With Shoulder Issue

As further indication of the awesomeness of the Red Sox medical staff, Brian Johnson was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a left shoulder impingement. Of course, the player and team "pooh-poohed" the injury at first, but the inevitable has happened. This particular injury seems to have cropped up a lot this year—perhaps the team should name "shoulder impingement" as the 2017 Red Sox Injury Of The Year. Pawtucket reliever Austin Maddox will replace Johnson on the big club's roster.
