Josh Johnson was off to an awful start before he landed on the disabled list last month with right triceps inflammation, but he’s ready to return to game action.

Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports that Johnson is slated to begin a minor league rehab assignment Monday with High-A Dunedin. He will likely need two or three starts before rejoining the Blue Jays’ rotation, which places his return in the early part of June.

Johnson, who was acquired in the blockbuster deal with the Marlins over the winter, has a 6.86 ERA and 19/9 K/BB ratio in 19 2/3 innings over four starts this season. The 29-year-old is set to become a free agent this winter.
