Johnson eyes spot with Pirates


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(2/16/2013) After fizzling as a prospect in the Red Sox organization, pitcher Kris Johnson is hoping to land a spot in the Pirates rotation this season. Johnson, considered the darkhorse for the position among a long list of candidates, has failed to make an appearance in the majors after being the 40th overall pick in the 2006 MLB Draft. He spent the 2012 season between Double-A Altoona and Triple-A Indianapolis and posted a quality 3.19 ERA. "Every time he pitched," manager Clint Hurdle told MLB.com, "somebody would say, 'Who is that guy?' So you watched him. He's been challenged in the past, and he's grown into himself."
