(5/24/13) Orioles pitcher Steve Johnson was scratched from a Triple-A start Friday, the Baltimore Sun reports. He could be recalled to serve in the bullpen Saturday if needed.
Johnson is 1-2 with a 5.49 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 24 strikeouts in 19 2/3 innings at Triple-A.
|Steve Johnson optioned to minors after loss|

(5/12/13) Orioles pitcher Steve Johnson (0-1) surrendered six runs and seven hits during his season debut in Baltimore's 8-5 loss at Minnesota on Saturday night. Johnson, who was optioned back to Triple-A Norfolk after lasting just four innings, walked four batters and struck out three.
"I couldn't get a good feel for my pitches," he said. "I couldn't get my secondary stuff over. I started off all right, but I couldn't make a pitch to get out of that inning. It's unfortunate that the team gives you that lead they gave you to not being able to make a pitch and limit the damage. It's not good."
Johnson was the ninth pitcher to start for Baltimore this season, tying the team with the Dodgers for most in the majors.

(5/11/13) The Orioles officially recalled Steve Johnson from Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday to start in Minnesota. Alex Burnett was sent out to make room on the roster.
Johnson has made three starts for Norfolk since coming off the disabled list. He is 1-2 with a 4.41 ERA in the minors.
He has struck out 19 and walked four through 16 1/3 innings. The 25-year-old went 4-0 with a 2.11 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP in 12 appearances (four starts) last season.
|Steve Johnson set to start Saturday|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(5/9/13) Orioles manger Buck Showalter told reporters following Thursday's game against the Rays that pitcher Steve Johnson will start Saturday against the Twins.
Johnson, who began the season on the disabled list, has made three starts for Triple-A Norfolk, including two as part of his rehab assignment. He is 1-2 with a 4.41 ERA in the minors.
He has struck out 19 and walked four through 16 1/3 innings of work. The 25-year-old went 4-0 with a 2.11 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP in 12 appearances (four starts) last season.
|Steve Johnson doesn't throw hard, which might explain why nobody cares to list him among the Orioles' top prospects. It certainly isn't because of his numbers. In 31 appearances, including 18 starts, between the majors and minors last year, he had a 2.64 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 9.2 strikeouts per nine innings. And he was even better in the majors than the minors. For the most part, he was a reliever for the big club, but he wasn't any less dominant in his four starts, compiling a 1.18 WHIP and 10.2 strikeouts per nine innings. With all of their starters back to full health to begin 2013, the Orioles simply don't have room in their rotation for Johnson, and as a long reliever, he's not going to pitch regularly enough to factor in Fantasy. But if an injury opens a rotation spot for him midseason, he might just pitch well enough to keep it. Nobody's calling Johnson the next Kris Medlen, but his path to this point in his career is similar. Don't let him sneak up on you in AL-only leagues. (Updated 1/9/13)|
