MIAMI (AP) - An MRI exam shows Florida Marlins ace Josh Johnson has no structural damage in his ailing right shoulder.

Johnson has been out since May 16. His agent, Matt Sosnick, says the right-hander had an MRI on Wednesday and was examined by Dr. James Andrews at his office in Birmingham, Ala.

Johnson received a cortisone shot and won’t throw for 10 days. He’s expected to rejoin the rotation sometime after the All-Star break.

The star pitcher was 3-1 with a 1.64 ERA before being sidelined. In his absence, the Marlins have gone into a June swoon that sank them to last place in the NL East.
