Steve Johnson might not start Saturday in Detroit after throwing two relief innings in Thursday’s game.
“There’s still that potential he can pitch there,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “He hadn’t pitched in seven days. We didn’t want to pitch anyone else. We were down to our last guy. I was trying to stay away from Steve if I could.” It’s not clear who will make the start if the O’s decide not to go with Johnson.
