Blue Jays | Josh Johnson scratched

Toronto Blue Jays SP Josh Johnson (triceps) was scratched from his start Friday, April 26, with tightness in his right triceps. P Aaron Laffey will start in his place.

Fantasy Tip: It's too early to declare a DL stint is coming, but we're leaning that way. Johnson has been awful in his transition to the American League with a 6.86 ERA and a 1.88 WHIP. What was once considered to be one of the brightest young stars on the mound is slowly dimming. Ricky Romero probably isn't an option at this point, as he'll make his first start at Class A Dunedin this weekend.
