Orioles outright Steve Johnson to Triple-A


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) The Orioles have outrighted pitcher Steve Johnson to Triple-A.

Johnson spent all of last season dealing with a shoulder injury. He decided to have surgery in September, but is expected to be ready by spring training. Johnson can refuse the assignment, though that doesn't really matter. He's set to become a free-agent following the World Series. The Orioles have contacted Johnson's agent about keeping him in Baltimore, according to MASN.

"It was either wait it out or stretch it out or get surgery and get it removed. It shouldn’t be a long recovery, but I think this is the best way to go," Johnson said.

Johnson has spent the season in the minors, posting a 6.23 ERA in 47 2/3 innings at three different levels, with most of his action coming with Triple-A Norfolk.

Steve Johnson wants to start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2014) Orioles pitcher Steve Johnson is hoping to win a rotation spot this spring, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Johnson missed a large chunk of 2013 due to injuries, and appeared in just nine games. Johnson said he believes he can be a starter in the majors, but admitted he's really just looking for a role on the Opening Day roster. "I definitely want to make that spot out of camp," Johnson said. Johnson doesn't have any options left. He participated in the team's offseason workout program in order to strengthen his shoulder, and worked on developing a splitter during the offseason.


Steve Johnson tinkering with splitter


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2014) Orioles pitcher Steve Johnson has been tinkering with a splitter this offseason, according to MASN.

Johnson said he's been working on the pitch the past few seasons, but hasn't used it much in games. After meeting with the team's pitching coaches during the offseason, Johnson decided to talk to former pitcher Bryan Harvey. He worked with Harvey on grips, and plans to continue working on the pitch during spring training. 


Zach Britton favorite to win final spot in O's rotation?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) If the Orioles don't sign another starting pitcher, left-hander Zach Britton is the likely favorite to win the fifth spot in the rotation because he's out of options, according to Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com.

If needed, the Orioles could send starting pitcher candidates Kevin Gausman, Steve Johnson and T.J. McFarland to the minors and bring them up later in the season. Though, McFarland could be a candidate for the bullpen while Troy Patton serves a 25-game suspension at the outset of the season.

However, Kubatko expects the Orioles will sign another starter. Chris Tillman, Wei-Yin Chen, Miguel Gonzalez and Bud Norris are expected to fill the first four spots in the team's rotation.


Steve Johnson working to get healthy


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) Orioles pitcher Steve Johnson is working to get healthy this offseason, according to MASN.

The team has an opening in the rotation, but Johnson said he would be happy with any role that allows him to pitch in the majors. He posted a 7.47 ERA in 15 2/3 innings last season.


Steve Johnson promoted Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2013) Orioles pitcher Steve Johnson has been recalled from Triple-A Thursday.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
