Joakim Noah (knee) continues to rehab from arthroscopic surgery and said he feels "great".
Noah had minor knee surgery after the season ended and should easily be ready for training camp and the regular season. He was overworked towards the end of the year and the club felt that it would be more prudent to have the surgery, rather than rest in the offseason, test the knee in camp and then opt for surgery. Smart move.ANALYST: Howard Bender
The Red Sox are looking for an opportunity to give Brian Johnson his major league debut.
Johnson has a 2.92 ERA and 8.76 K/9 over 49 1/3 innings here in his first go-around with Triple-A Pawtucket. While the Red Sox would like to give him a taste of the majors, they'd obviously prefer to have a stronger rotation and not need to dip into their farm system as much as they have already. Steven Wright and Eduardo Rodriguez are getting a look right now. Should they fail and the struggles at the back end of the rotation continue, then perhaps we'll see Johnson at some point.
