Tampa Bay Rays' Elliot Johnson likely headed to disabled list

Tampa Bay Rays infielder Elliot Johnson is likely headed to the DL due to his left knee sprain, manager Joe Maddon said.

Reid Brignac, who has been on the bereavement list following the death of his grandfather, will return early and join the team for Wednesday's game in Detroit.

Maddon said Johnson was still having trouble walking around on Tuesday, and it was "better than 50-50" that he would end up on the DL. Sean Rodriguez, who played shortstop regularly in the minors, will start tonight, his sixth start in the majors.
