For the second straight year, Josh Johnson's season has been cut short due to injury.

The Marlins' ace has been shut down for the rest of the season due to right shoulder inflammation, according to a report by Jon Heyman of SI.com.

There is no further structural damage to Johnson's shoulder. He has not thrown a ball since the end of June.

MLB.com reported on Tuesday that this was a pivotal week for Johnson to determine if he had enough time to get ready to pitch before the end of September.
