Johnson nearing a return!

Chris Johnson is getting close to returning from his intercostal strain and took BP yesterday for the first time, says McTaggart.

Johnson:
"I had some soreness after we hit, so I backed it down and didn't hit. Today, I got back after it and I'll see how it responds. That's basically what it's coming down to, is how it responds to me taking full swings."

Wade:
"He's almost to the point where he might be starting Spring Training all over again because he's missed so much time at this point. He's making good progress and [head athletic trainer] Nate Lucero and the coaches are monitoring it, and hopefully we get him on a rehab assignment sooner rather than later."
