Jets don't expect Chris Johnson to be a workhorse running back and will limit his carries to keep him fresh.
It seems like the Jets signed Johnson thinking he could be a more productive back if given fewer carries, and hit more "home runs" with fresh legs. CJ?K has looked terrible between the tackles the last couple of seasons, and the three-headed monster of Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell and Chris Johnson could be a very productive backfield. It could be a frustrating situation for fantasy owners. ANALYST:
Eduardo Rodriguez will start Thursday in Texas for the Red Sox.
The Red Sox were considering bringing Rodriguez up in late April when Wade Miley was struggling but now they may consider him a potential replacement for the nightmare that is Joe Kelly. He'll start Thursday to stay on his regular throwing schedule and this may only be a spot start/audition, but keep an eye on him especially if there's a chance he joins the rotation.

Wil Myers (wrist) is improving but not close to returning.
It's not so much that he isn't close to returning, it's that the Padres are being very cautious with him and have not set a timetable for him to start swinging a bat. Once he does start, it might not be too long before he lands on a rehab assignment. The team is hoping for an early-to-mid June return, but we'll just have to wait and see. Analysis: Howard Bender
