Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Josh Johnson will likely be out until June with a triceps injury, reports MLB.com.

Johnson was eligible to come off the disabled list next week and he hasn't pitched since April 21.

The Blue Jays are 13-23 and in last place in the American League East. Only the Houston Astros and Miami Marlins have worse records in the Major Leagues than Toronto.

"He's started playing catch, feeling better," Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said to MLB.com. "We're hopeful to get him into a rehab game starting on the 21st [of May]. That's not set in stone, but that's kind of the date that we've had."
Johnson, 29, is 0-1 with a 6.86 ERA, 1.88 WHIP and 2.11 K/BB ratio in four starts this season.
