Orioles option RHP Steve Johnson to Triple-A

  •  

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Baltimore Orioles have optioned right-hander Steve Johnson to Triple-A Norfolk after he started Saturday's game against the Twins.

Johnson allowed seven hits and six earned runs, while striking out three in four innings in his first start of the season. He walked four.

Johnson, who was 4-0 with a 2.11 ERA in 12 games (four starts) for Baltimore last season, hoped to make the Orioles as the team's fifth starter out of spring training, but strained his right lat muscle in late March.

In three Triple-A rehab starts, he was 1-1 with a 4.41 ERA.
