Paulino to be activated - Johnson held out

Hey! Felipe Paulino will be activated from the 60-Day DL.

Though Paulino was exclusively a starter before the injury, his return will be as a reliever. It also will be unusual in the sense that he cannot be called on with short notice. Rather, the appearances will be scheduled before the games like in spring training, and if the situation dictates that he cannot be used, he'll throw his daily work in the bullpen.


You may have noticed that Chris Johnson wasn't in the lineup last night, as he is dealing with some back soreness. How bad is it, Mills?
"It doesn't seem to be too bad. It sounded like he probably could have gone, but after talking to him and the trainers, we thought it would be best not to."
