CSN Chicago Insider: Pierce Johnson

CSN Chicago: Cubs Insider

Tennessee Smokies starter Pierce Johnson is the subject of the latest CSN Chicago feature from Tony Andracki and Mick Gillispie.

Johnson is currently 1-1 with a 4.39 ERA over six games and five starts for the Smokies this season. He has been limited to 26 and 2/3 innings pitched over his six games and has yet to pitch past the sixth inning in a start with the Smokies. Johnson last pitched on 5/19 in Mississippi and would go just four innings. He did not allow a hit or a run and stuck out two in that outing.

Johnson struck out a season high eight on 5/8 in a home start versus Birmingham. He allowed two runs on five hits over six inning on 5/8 in could be considered his best start of the season.
