COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina reliever Curtis Johnson strained a tendon in his right bicep and will be out at least a week.
The school said Monday that Johnson, a senior, would undergo treatment this week and be re-evaluated by doctors and trainers. Johnson missed much of last season with a torn labrum and a rotator cuff injury that required surgery.
He pitched to one batter in the seventh inning of Sunday's 5-4 victory at Mississippi State before coming out. Johnson (1-0) made five appearances this season, striking out 12 in nine innings of work. He also held opponents to a .182 batting average, second best on the Gamecocks.
