(05/09/13) Orioles manger Buck Showalter told reporters following Thursday's game against the Rays that pitcher Steve Johnson will start Saturday against the Twins.

Johnson, who began the season on the disabled list, has made three starts for Triple-A Norfolk, including two as part of his rehab assignment. He is 1-2 with a 4.41 ERA in the minors.

He has struck out 19 and walked four through 16 1/3 innings of work. The 25-year-old went 4-0 with a 2.11 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP in 12 appearances (four starts) last season.

I like him. He'll get 2-3 starts for Gonzalez, and if he does good, will most likely stick over Freddy Garcia and keep the 5th spot warm for Gausman later in the year.

I like him despite the rough outing yesterday - disappointed to see him send back down, as last year he served in the pen and others (Garcia, Gonzales, Hammel - although he has some rope because of last year) in the O's rotation ain't that great. Johnson is a handy swing man to have around.
