(3/4/14) White Sox pitcher Erik Johnson made his spring debut Tuesday, allowing one earned run on three hits and one walk in three innings while striking out two in his team's 5-4 loss to the Indians.
Johnson is expected to open the season in the rotation. He got his first taste of the majors last season, going 3-2 with a 3.25 ERA and 18:11 K:BB ratio in 27 2/3 innings over five starts.
|Erik Johnson penciled into rotation spot |

(2/17/14) The White Sox have hinted on multiple occasions this offseason they expect Erik Johnson to be part of the team's rotation in 2014. Well, pitching coach Don Cooper gave another strong signal Monday when he said the right-hander is "firmly" penciled into a rotation spot.
|Buddy Bell: Erik Johnson could earn rotation spot |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(2/12/14) White Sox rookie rght-hander Erik Johnson "has a very good chance of leaving spring training in the rotation," vice president of player personnel Buddy Bell told the MLB Network.
Johnson proved somewhat promising in five starts last season. He won three of five decisions with a 3.25 ERA, though he yielded five home runs among his 32 hits in 27 2/3 innings with just 18 strikeouts.
|Between two stops, Erik Johnson compiled the fifth-best ERA (1.96) and third-best WHIP (0.99) in all the minor leagues, earning him a big-league promotion in September. He wasn't quite as effective there, but he showed enough to have the inside track on a rotation spot for a rebuilding White Sox team. Though his minor-league numbers may remind you of Jose Fernandez's, Johnson isn't quite the same caliber of prospect, but he throws hard, boasts a full arsenal and has the size and mentality to develop into a workhorse. In other words, little stands in his way of becoming a relevant Fantasy contributor -- and sooner rather than later. If early returns are any indication, he may endure some growing pains as a rookie, but the optimistic sort might consider investing a late-round pick in him on Draft Day, hoping he'll have learned from that experience. A big spring would go a long way toward improving Johnson's stock for the short term, so you'll want to keep an eye on him. As for the long term, you can trust him to develop into at least a No. 3 starter, with the potential for more.
