New York Yankees’ Nick Johnson Not Expected to Play Against LA Angels Sunday

style="text-align: justify;">According to Chad Jennings of the Journal News, Yankees designated hitter Nick Johnson has a stiff back and isn’t expected to play today, but after an off day on Monday should be back in the lineup Tuesday.

Johnson, who has been struggling, to hit, was taking extra batting practice Friday and as a result has a stiff back that caused him to miss yesterday’s game. It is a minor injury and initially they thought he could play today, but by the end of the day yesterday Girardi said that it hadn’t improve as quick as they hoped it would and decided he’s going to get an extra day of rest. Like I said above, he’s expected to be back in the lineup Tuesday.
