White Sox | Erik Johnson looking to build on last year

Tue, 04 Mar 2014 19:21:20 -0800

Chicago White Sox SP Erik Johnson is pegged to fill out the back end of the rotation this season after working his way up from Double-A Birmingham to the majors at the end of last season. He made his spring debut Tuesday, March 4, allowing one run and three hits with a walk over three innings in Cactus League action against the Cleveland Indians. "Today was just get my work in, use all my pitches, get out of there healthy and feel good about it," Johnson said.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson was dominant in the minors last season, earning a September call-up. He was so impressive with the big club that they penciled him into the rotation. He is worth using in all AL-only fantasy leagues for his strikeout potential, but mixed leaguers will want to take a wait-and-see attitude. Since he'll be in the back-end of the rotation, and there are plenty of off days early in the season, it is possible he doesn't start as frequently as fantasy owners might like.

White Sox | Chris Beck working way up

Tue, 04 Mar 2014 19:20:48 -0800

Chicago White Sox P Chris Beck is in camp as a non-roster invitee, and he is expected to begin the season with Double-A Birmingham. Like SP Erik Johnson last season, Beck could follow a similar path, starting with the Barons, and finishing up in Chicago in September. He has a fastball in the low- to mid-90's, and he feels his secondary stuff is improving. "The breaking stuff has kind of always been behind, so that's really been the key," Beck said. "Last year at Double-A, I had some success with the curveball, and now just since camp started, I feel like I've added some depth to my slider."
