Back to No. 24 for Johnson
BOSTON -- Dan Johnson isn't superstitious by nature, but when he was offered No. 24, he took it.

Manny Ramirez took over No. 24 prior to the season and Johnson switched to No. 29. Johnson had worn No. 24 during his previous time with the Rays, and decided to take it back after Ramirez retired on Friday.

Changing "can't hurt," Johnson said of returning to his old number. "Some of my biggest hits have come wearing that number."
