#Padres pitcher Josh Johnson is "committed to giving it one more shot'' as he prepares to undergo his third elbow reconstruction sometime in the next two weeks, said his agent, Matt Sosnick. Johnson, who hasn't pitched in the big leagues since 2013, knew he had a torn ligament in his right elbow 10 weeks ago. "The Padres' upper management and their medical staff have been very supportive, and they told him he could try to pitch through it,'' Sosnick said. The agent said Johnson is looking at all medical options, including "cutting edge'' procedures beyond the standard Tommy John surgery. Johnson made back-to-back All-Star teams with the Marlins in 2009 and 2010, but has enjoyed only one injury-free season over the past five years. @JonHeymanCBS reported on Johnson's latest injury Tuesday.
