Josh Johnson made his first minor-league rehab start yesterday, throwing three innings of one-run ball at Single-A.

Johnson, who’s been out since April 21 with a strained triceps, struck out five and walked zero while allowing three hits against the Mets’ affiliate.

Johnson had hoped to be back in the Blue Jays’ rotation by now, but setbacks followed and he’ll likely be asked to make at least 2-3 more rehab starts while building up arm strength. Before being shut down Johnson had a 6.86 ERA in four starts.

    It is a start. Nice to have him pitching again.

    Why wouldn’t the Jays go easy on him and let him face the Mets major league club?
