RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

There was no outlook written for Erik Johnson.

2016

Johnson began the 2014 season as the White Sox’s top pitching prospect and heir to a rotation spot, but he was all but forgotten on the eve of 2015. Control was the problem in 2014, as he walked 13.8 percent of the batters he faced in the majors, and then nearly 11.0 percent upon his demotion to Triple-A. He spent the subsequent offseason overhauling his mechanics, resulting in a diminished walk rate, an upped strikeout rate, and which helped him to win the Most Outstanding Pitcher award for the International League. The walks returned in his late-season promotion to Chicago, but he stands to grab a spot in the back end of the White Sox’s rotation after the club let Jeff Samardzija depart via free agency during the offseason.

2015

Johnson entered the 2014 season as the White Sox's top pitching prospect, but it ended up being a lost year after an early-season flop in the rotation. He pitched into the sixth inning in one of his six major league starts, and then barely struck out more than he walked over his next 100-plus innings at Triple-A Charlotte. While Johnson will be in the mix for a back-end rotation spot in spring training, he has a lot of work to do to regain his standing in the organization.

2014

Johnson may be one of the better under-the-radar pitching prospects in the league. He came out of college with some control issues, but those problems appear to have been alleviated, as evidenced by his 131:40 K:BB last season across Double-A Birmingham and Triple-A Charlotte. He boasts a mid-90s fastball to go with a polished slider and changeup, which helped him achieve a .197 batting average against in the minor leagues. He does not project to be a big strikeout pitcher in the majors despite striking out eight in a September start against the Twins. Still, low strikeout rate pitchers have had success with the White Sox in recent years, and Johnson should contend for a rotation spot in spring training.
