Cubs' Pierce Johnson: Optioned to Triple-A club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Sunday.

Johnson was brought up from Iowa prior to the weekend to provide an extra arm out of the bullpen and made his MLB debut Friday against the Brewers, giving up two unearned runs over one inning. With the Cubs recalling Dylan Floro on Sunday to slot in as a long reliever, Johnson was sent back to Iowa in a corresponding move to see more regular reps out of the bullpen.

Cubs' Pierce Johnson: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Wednesday.

Johnson was recalled to take the place of Jeimer Candelario, who was sent back to Triple-A earlier Wednesday. The 26-year-old owns a 3.21 ERA through with an impressive 13.5 K/9 through 14 innings with Iowa this season, though his 7.1 BB/9 makes his numbers a little less enticing. He should be available Wednesday against the Reds, though he likely won't see any high-leverage roles given the pedigree of arms already in the Cubs' bullpen.

Cubs' Pierce Johnson: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Friday, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

In an attempt to keep him healthy, Johnson was shifted to the bullpen full-time for the 2017 season, after injuries marred his 2016 campaign. He struggled to a 6.14 ERA in 63 Triple-A innings last season, so the Cubs will likely want to see him perform there before calling him up. If he's able to keep up his 10.7 K/9 and drop his 6.1 BB/9 at Triple-A, he could find himself in the majors sometime in 2017.

Cubs' Pierce Johnson: Set to act as reliever in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will stay in the bullpen, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

After an injury-plagued 2016 campaign, the Cubs are hoping that a move to the bullpen will keep their pitching prospect healthy while also helping his fastball and breaking pitches to become sharper. Johnson struggled in his first taste of Triple-A last season, but if he can right the ship while maintaining his uptick in strikeouts from last season, he could find his way to Wrigley Field later in the season.

Cubs' Pierce Johnson: Will go back on disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (hand) will head back to the DL on Thursday with a blister on his pitching hand, Tommy Birch of the Des Moines Register reports.

Almost two weeks ago Johnson was activated off the disabled list as he recovered from a lat injury that had sidelined him since mid-April. Johnson shouldn't miss too much time with a blister on his right hand, but he likely won't return until July.
