Josh Johnson will miss his scheduled start Friday against the New York Yankees because of a mild case of triceps inflammation.

Lefthander Aaron Laffey, claimed off waivers from the New York Mets this past week, will start instead.

Johnson is expected to be ready to make his next start next Wednesday.
