Nick Johnson, Already Hurt
Nick Johnson hurt his back taking BP yesterday, pretty much obliterating the Yankees' theory that limiting him to DH duty would likely keep him healthy. Apparently, Johnson is so fragile, Carl Pavano regularly calls him up to offer words of advice on staying healthy. It's not a good start to the spring for Johnson, who luckily managed not to injure his wrist in the Skee ball competition from a few days ago. Only time will tell whether Johnson can stay off the DL during the regular season for a long enough to stretch to make an impact. Right now, it's not looking good for that 2011 option.
