24 year old steve johnson[arguably norfolks best starter] faces a big decision on june 1st. if he is not satisfied with his place in the oriole organization, he can pack his bags and move on. if the o's do not put johnson on the 40 man roster by june 1st, he can opt out of his contract. while not overpowering[89-91], johnson has a diverse repertoire, and has moved steadily through every level of the minor leagues. he is in the top ten in most of the important pitching categories[whip#3, era#9, 3-1 k to walk ratio] in the international league. he has been on the 7 day disabled list and missed one start[groin] but has shown durability during his 8 years in the minors. do the orioles consider him a career minor leaguer or will they give him a shot with an elevation to the 40 man roster? the answer will come on friday.
