White Sox send six to minor-league camp
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/28/14) The White Sox reassigned six players to minor-league camp Friday, including catcher Hector Gimenez, infielders Micah Johnson and Alex Liddi, outfielder Blake Tekotte and pitchers Zach Putnam and David Purcey.
Micah Johnson not expected to make opening day roster
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/14) White Sox second baseman Micah Johnson is a long shot to make the opening day roster, despite second baseman Gordon Beckham (oblique) unlikely to be ready for the start of the season, per MLB.com. However, general manager Rick Hahn has been impressed by the defensive improvements Johnson has made.
Micah Johnson fully recovered
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/2/14) White Sox infielder Micah Johnson is fully recovered after elbow surgery, according to MILB.com.

Johnson actually had two procedures on his elbow, but said it's all taken care of now. "The first time it wasn't done quite right, but I've been out in Arizona hitting for a couple weeks now and I'm 100 percent," Johnson said. He's coming off a season in which he hit .312/.373/.451 across three levels. He also stole 84 bases.

Micah Johnson finding ways to improve his defense
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/27/14) White Sox infield prospect Micah Johnson went into the offseason with the goal of improving his defensive focus at second base. He planned to accomplish that goal by playing less video games and replacing the free time with playing the piano and painting.

"It's something I always have loved to do, paint and play piano and guitar," Johnson said, per MLB.com. "I do that for hours for better focus, instead of playing video games where I can do nothing but shoot a couple of guys on the screen.

"Baseball is all about focusing pitch to pitch. Sometimes I'll take a pitch off, and that's when the hard ground ball is hit to me and I'll boot it. That's not going to happen anymore."

The 2012 second-round pick had a stellar season in 2013, leading the minors with 84 stolen bases. He also hit .312 with a .373 on-base percentage, .824 OPS, seven home runs, 15 triples, 24 doubles, 58 RBI and 106 runs in 131 games between Class A and Double-A. 

His strong performance last season has given Johnson plenty of confidence heading into 2014.

"Where I came from at the start of last year to now, it's huge leaps and bounds with my game defensively," said Johnson, who hopes to remain a second baseman. "Hitting wise, I made improvements. Stealing wise, I made improvements, but defense is what keeps people around this league."
