    Josh Johnson could be done for Season; visiting Dr Kaplan Wed.

    JJ to visit Dr. Kaplan
    Pitching woes are piling up for the Marlins.

    Now their ace is going to be out for an undetermined amount of time.

    Two-time All-Star Josh Johnson is traveling to South Florida on Wednesday to have his back and shoulder examined by team physician, Dr. Lee Kaplan.

    Johnson cut short a between starts bullpen session on Tuesday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park.

    The 26-year-old two-time All-Star was slated to pitch on Friday against Washington at Nationals Park. Alex Sanabia now will start that game.

    "The priority here is to make sure JJ is fine," Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez said. "He's going to see Dr. Kaplan tomorrow. We're going to check his back and his shoulder. We want to make sure everything is alright with him."

    Another major blow to the Marlins, who were longshots to make the playoffs, but even more so now. In the past month, these are the players the Marlins have lost for the season:
    -Chris Coghlan (knee)
    -John Baker (elbow)
    -Ronnie Paulino(suspension)
    -Ricky Nolasco(knee)
    -Donnie Murphy(wrist)
    -Brett Hayes(shoulder)

    This injury will also remove Johnson from further CY Young considerations.

    "We are more concerned about his back than his shoulder. We want to make sure everything is all right with him,' manager Edwin Rodriguez said.
    This made me feel a little bit better. But still very concerning anytime a young pitcher has to go see the doctors.

    Good point. Beast of a pitcher, hate to see him go down (except maybe of exhaustion when he has to play the Rockies lol)
    Time for some hootenanny.

    Absolutely sucks. I love JJ, one of the best pitchers in the game and he's still very young. Shoulder is always a scary injury, but hopefully it's nothing serious and they are just taking a precaution since the fish are basically out of it. Get well soon Josh!

    I am glad they are taking such precautions. JJ is a top pitcher in the game and one of my overall favorite pitchers in the league... He might not win the cy now but I fully expect him to make up for that with a few of them over his career. Best of luck JJ... really smart move by the marlins here.

    The Marlins should shut him down for this year there is no need to take such a risk with such a young animal that Josh is.
