Johjima to DL
Kenji Johjima has been placed on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring. Making sure this doesn’t linger or turn into anything more serious is the wise move. Especially considering the work he did in the WBC, hopefully this allows for some rest in addition to getting healthy. The media tends to focus on pitcher overwork (Matsuzaka), but tacked onto the grind of being behind the plate for a full season, the effect on catchers might warrant more attention.
It speaks volumes about Jeff Clement’s future as a catcher that he’s still in Tacoma at this point. Jamie Burke is the new Pat Borders.
Also, Tuiasosopo gets sent down so he can actually play. Sean White is the first name spit out by the random bullpen arm generator.
