JJ to miss throw Minors game Sunday

JUPITER, Fla. — Josh Johnson’s Grapefruit League season is over.

Rather than throw in his scheduled start against the Nationals in Viera on Sunday, the Marlins ace is staying back in Jupiter and pitching in a Minor League game. There is nothing physically wrong with Johnson, who made five spring starts and he has a 1-2 record with a 4.95 ERA in 20 innings.

Not facing the Nationals on Sunday makes sense, because Johnson is set to face them in the sixth game of the season, on April 7 at Sun Life Stadium.

Adalberto Mendez is scheduled to pitch in Viera on Sunday.
