      White Sox SP Erik Johnson wraps up rookie campaign with strong outing

      White Sox starter Erik Johnson went 6 1/3 innings Saturday, giving up two earned runs on five hits and three walks while striking out four in a 4-3 win over the Tigers. The 25-year-old continued his bid for a 2016 rotation spot, ending his season with four quality starts in six outings. Johnson doesn't miss many bats and allows too many walks, which limits his fantasy value, but his peripherals generally show improvement from his major league stint last season.

      White Sox SP Erik Johnson falls apart late in loss to Yankees

      White Sox starting pitcher Erik Johnson allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings against the Yankees on Sunday to take his first loss of the season. He held the Yankees to a lone run through the first five frames of this game, but then he lost a handle on his command in the sixth. The inning started with a Dustin Ackley solo homer, and he exited after two singles, two walks, two more runs and a passed ball. He has pitched well enough this September to warrant strong consideration for a starting spot come 2016, but his walking habits will continue to hound him.

      White Sox starting pitcher Erik Johnson (2-0) picked up his second win of the month Wednesday after holding the A's to three runs on six hits and three walks in six innings. He allowed his fifth home run in three September starts, but Johnson worked around his nine baserunners well enough to pick up a quality start and the win. Johnson should earn a few more starts down the stretch as he auditions for a 2016 rotation role.

But he was left with a no-decision after the bullpen coughed up a 2-1 lead. The Twins wound up dropping the game 6-2.
