Jim Johnson placed on the 10-day DL

Jim Johnson was placed on the 10-day DL due to a back injury.

Fantasy Impact

There have not been any updates on Johnson's back injury but it sounds like a lumbar strain. Fantasy owners can move on from the veteran reliever whose fantasy value only comes from holds at the moment.

Jim Johnson struggles in relief appearance, Angels lose

Jim Johnson struggled through 1/3 of an inning, giving up four runs - three earned - on four hits including a home run as the Angels fell to the Rays, 7-1.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson came into a low scoring tightly pitched game and served up runs almost immediately, surrendering a lead-off single and a two run homer to Denard Span a batter later. He then promptly allowed an infield single to C.J. Cron who then stole second and came around to score on a Daniel Robertson single before exiting the game. Robertson would eventually come around to score to put the Halos in a 5-0 deficit halfway through the seventh. Johnson and his 4.30 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and ugly .284 BAA is rather uninspiring in the post-Middleton era but figures to still be involved as manager Mike Sioscia is committed to a committee.

Jim Johnson gets first save

Jim Johnson pitched a scoreless ninth inning, striking out two and walking one to secure his first save of the year.

Fantasy Impact

Well, that works; Jim Johnson blew his previous attempt at a save, back on May 5th, but nails down his first the day that Keynan Middleton returns from the disabled list. Likely headed back to a set up role of sorts, Johnson sports a 2-1 record with a 3.60 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and three holds.

Jim Johnson blows the save on Saturday

Jim Johnson couldn't protect two separate leads on Saturday night against the Mariners, blowing the save in the 10th inning before getting saddled with the loss in the 11th inning. Overall, he allowed three runs (two earned) in 1 1/3 innings, giving up three hits and one walk while striking out one.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson got his chance to take over as the interim closer with Keynan Middleton on the disabled list and promptly blew his opportunity. With Justin Anderson and Cam Bedrosian also pitching poorly, the Angels bullpen seems like a place to avoid until Middleton returns.

Jim Johnson records 22nd save in Thursday's win

Jim Johnson pitched around a leadoff double and a walk in the ninth inning of a 6-3 win over the Dodgers on Thursday to lock down his 22nd save of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson has converted three straight save opportunities since the All-Star break. However, his strikeout rate which was 29.5% during the first half of the season has dipped to 18.2% so far in the second half through three appearances. Something to keep an eye on going forward.
