He gets the Wed start in Cleveland.  Will he be an opener?  Three innings tops IMO.

The original plan was for him to throw around 50-60 pitches but after going last night they're going to start Johnson.

Johnson!!!!!  That is almost guaranteeing a very bad day.  Johnson has pitched about as badly as any of our pitchers this season.  The guy really has nothing solid to bring to the mound, a fastball below average, curves that he hangs all the time, no change up worth noting and inability to spot his pitches with any regularity  In other words he stinks.
