Red Sox choose Masterson over Brian Johnson for spot in rotation

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/25/15) The Red Sox opted to put Justin Masterson back in the starting rotation and not promote starting pitcher prospect Brian Johnson after deciding to option Joe Kelly to Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Johnson is "getting closer" to the big leagues, but Masterson was the first choice to take Kelly's rotation spot.

Johnson, who is considered a top-100 prospect by Baseball America (No. 82), is 8-4 with a 2.57 ERA through 14 starts for Pawtucket.

Brian Johnson an option to replace Joe Kelly in Red Sox rotation?

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/25/15) Red Sox starting pitcher prospect Brian Johnson had another strong outing for Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday, allowing one unearned run on one hit and one walk in 6 2/3 innings. He struck out seven.

The left-hander is 8-4 with a 2.57 ERA through 14 starts and continues to push for a spot in the major-league rotation. It appears the Red Sox are thinking about it, but general manager Ben Cherington isn't sure when they will make the call to bring the 2012 first-round pick to the majors.

“It seems that it’s more a question of when and not if that he’ll get an opportunity at some point,” Cherington said, per WEEI.com. “We have not made any decision on as to when that will be, but he’s pitching his way into the conversation, just like other guys have before him so we’ll see, but he threw well.”

With Joe Kelly struggling, the Red Sox could bring up Johnson from the minors to take his spot in the rotation. However, Cherington said the two moves are not related.

“John [Farrell] and I will get together on [Kelly Thursday], and we’re certainly trying to figure out what the right plan is for Joe to help him make a step forward,” he said. “We know he’s got the ability to be better than he has been, and knows that, so we’re working through a plan to try to address that, but they are not directly related in my mind.”

Report: Red Sox not ready to promote Brian Johnson to majors

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/3/15) Red Sox starting pitcher prospect Brian Johnson has been scratched from his next start at Triple-A Pawtucket, but a promotion to the majors is not imminent, per The Boston Globe. The left-handed pitcher was skipped to scale back on his workload.

Johnson, who is considered a top-100 prospect (No. 82) by Baseball America, is having a pretty good season at Pawtucket. He is 6-3 with a 2.60 ERA and 1.07 WHIP in 10 starts. He also has 57 strikeouts in 55 1/3 innings.

The 2012 first-round pick is 21-12 with a 2.30 ERA and 1.03 WHIP in 58 career starts in the minors. He is striking out 8.6 batters per nine innings.

Red Sox SP prospect Brian Johnson deserving of promotion?

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/1/15) With the Red Sox rotation off to a rocky start this season, if the team looks for help in the minors, starting pitcher prospect Brian Johnson could be an option for a promotion since he is off to a promising start for Triple-A Pawtucket.

The lefty hurler, who is considered a top-100 prospect by Baseball America (No. 82), is 3-1 with a 0.86 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in four starts. He has totaled 24 strikeouts and nine walks in 21 innings. He has allowed just three runs (two earned) and 12 hits.

Johnson is 18-10 with a 2.11 ERA and 1.01 WHIP in 52 career starts. He went 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA and 23 strikeouts in 20 innings during spring training.

Red Sox not looking to add Eduardo Rodriguez, Brian Johnson

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/29/15) Though pitchers Eduardo Rodriguez and Brian Johnson are performing well in Triple-A Pawtucket, the Red Sox do not have any plans to call them up to the 25-man roster, according to the Boston Herald.

Rodriguez has a 1.93 ERA with 16 strikeouts in 18 1/3 innings of work. Johnson has gone 21 innings and has an ERA of 0.86 with 24 strikeouts. 

"As I’ve said before, my personal belief is once you’re in Triple-A you’re not a prospect anymore, you’re just part of our depth. Anybody there has to be ready to come up," Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington. "We’ve played 21 games here, Pawtucket has played a couple less. We still have to get into the little season a little bit.”
