SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The San Francisco Giants have activated 303-game winner Randy Johnson from the 60-day disabled list and said he hopes to pitch out of the bullpen.

The 45-year-old Johnson threw 53 pitches, including warmups, in a simulated game on Monday, and he was activated on Tuesday.

The five-time Cy Young Award winner injured his left shoulder more than two months ago. Johnson last pitched July 5, when he came out of a game against Houston because of a left shoulder strain, an injury that was later called a torn rotator cuff.

Johnson, who has 4,869 strikeouts, is 8-6 with an ERA of 4.81 in 17 starts.
