Pierce Johnson might miss a start at Double-A due to injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) Cubs starting pitcher prospect Pierce Johnson has been sidelined the past week due to hamstring tightness, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. However, the Cubs don't consider it a serious injury.

Jason McLeod, the Cubs' senior vice president for scouting and player development, said the injury might delay Johnson's season debut at Double-A Tennessee by a week.

"It might be one skipped start,” McLeod said, "but it shouldn’t be a situation where he’s left back here in Arizona."

Johnson, a 2012 first-round pick, was 11-6 with a 2.74 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 23 appearances (21 starts) between two levels of Class A in 2013. He struck out 9.4 batters per nine innings.
