White Sox remain confident in pitcher Erik Johnson after rough 2014
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(2/23/15) White Sox pitcher Erik Johnson didn't have an ideal 2014 campaign. He pitched in just 23 2/3 innings and posted a 6.46 ERA with a 1-1 record. Pitching coach Don Cooper still thinks he can get the job done.
"Listen, he didn't have the year he was looking for, but this kid is still a top-notch, quality prospect and it's up to us and him to help him get back to that spot," said Cooper. "That doesn't worry me, we do that in a lot of cases."
Johnson also posted a 6.73 ERA in 20 starts for Triple-A Charlotte.
"But we've got to get him back going to where he was, and if we do, we're better. We've got him in case something goes wrong. We've got Brad Penny, we've got Beck, [Frank] Montas, Danish. These are all the kids who are coming, but we just bought more time by getting shored up at the big league level."
White Sox haven't lost faith in Erik Johnson
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/22/14) White Sox starting pitcher Erik Johnson has had his struggles since being demoted to Triple-A Charlotte in late April. The right-hander is just 1-4 with a 6.54 ERA in 10 starts, while also walking 31 batters in 53 2/3 innings.
Despite a down year for the 2011 second-round draft pick, the White Sox haven't lost faith in the 24-year-old hurler.
"I'll point to Randy Johnson and Roger Clemens. Those guys didn't succeed right off the bat," White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper said, per MLB.com. "Not everybody grabs the brass ring the first time around the merry go round, and the rest is history. I remember when Jon Garland was here at 19 and everybody expected a lot more from him because he was a highly touted No. 1 guy.
"He wasn't able to give what everyone expected at 19. Sometimes you have to take lumps and hits to continue to evolve into the guy you are going to be, a solid major leaguer."

|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|

Erik Johnson blasted in no-decision
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(4/26/14) White Sox starting pitcher Erik Johnson couldn't even get out of the second inning Friday against the Rays, though the White Sox were able to a rally in a 9-6 win.
Johnson got out of the first inning without much trouble, and was even handed a lead in that frame. Unfortunately, that's where the good times ended for him, as he was charged with four runs on four hits and four walks in 1 2/3 innings of work.
Johnson ended up with a no-decision in spite of his disastrous start, and remains 1-1 with a 6.46 ERA on the season. His next outing is set for Wednesday against the Tigers.

|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|

Johnson owns a 5.32 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP over his first 22 innings pitched. He will make his next start Friday at home against Tampa Bay.
