Here’s a quick and dirty view of Nick Johnson’s injury history via Fantasy Pitch F/X.

During the course of his 8-year career, Johnson has spent roughly 589 days on the bench due to medical issues.

However, he has never been a team’s designated hitter for a full season. Perhaps the change will alter his fortunes.

  1. Certainly not pretty, but it does not seem like he has a chronic issue that should hamper him into this uear. Hopefully the Dh role will keep him fresh, but I would like to add one more bat just in case, preferably Xavier Nady (assuming Damon is really off the table).  (Quote)

  2. Maybe the reason that he has not played much DH is that he has been in the NL excpt when he came up with the Yanks.  (Quote)

    Astute, Steve…

    Seriously, though, nobody ever wondered why he hasn’t been a DH. Merely, all that was said was that by becoming a DH full-time, hopefully it will resolve his fragile tendencies.  (Quote)
