Reed Johnson Placed On Disabled List To Make Room For Manny Ramirez

To make room for the return of Manny Ramirez, who was activated from the disabled list for tonight’s game, the Dodgers have placed Reed Johnson on the 15-day disabled list, per Tony Jackson of ESPN Los Angeles:

To clear a roster spot, the Dodgers placed reserve outfielder Reed Johnson on the 15-day disabled list with the same back injury that rendered him unavailable for the final three games of the first half.

The Dodgers have classified the injury to Johnson as a lumbar strain.

Johnson will be eligible to return from the disabled list on July 24, when the Dodgers host the Mets.
