Chris Carpenter, Jaime Garcia, Adam Wainwright and Johnson — have combined records are 50-18, 2.38…all four rank in the Top 10 in the league in ERA.
*In the limited sample size, Scott Rolen has faired the best vs. Johnson at 3-for-7 (.429).
*It now says TBA on Reds game notes for Sunday’s starter vs. Florida. However, there has been no announcement if that day’s originally scheduled starter, Johnny Cueto, will appeal the seven-game suspension he got.
