Brian Johnson ‘More Than Willing’ To Both Start, Relieve Games For Red Sox

Brian Johnson has a unique role with the Boston Red Sox.

While the left-hander entered the 2018 season as one of the long relievers out of Boston’s bullpen, he’s also stepped up when his team needed him for spot starts.

Prior to his fourth start of the season Sunday against the Toronto Blue Jays at Fenway Park, Johnson caught up with NESN’s Tom Caron to talk about his role and how he prides himself on being versatile.

To hear from Johnson, check out the video above from “Red Sox First Pitch,” presented by Men’s Wearhouse.
