CLEVELAND -- If Erik Johnson reaches the majors this season, the White Sox feel as if their former top-pitching prospect has turned a corner.


He disappeared before ever throwing a pitch, reappeared four years later out of the blue and is back firing 99 mile per hour fastballs.


GLENDALE, Ariz. -- As if he didn’t already know his surname is a mouthful, every opposing PA to butcher it last season gave Trey Michalczewski a refresher.


GLENDALE, Ariz. — He’s no longer a kid nor does he routinely pump fastballs in the high 90-mph range across the plate.


Nick Delmonico has a blemish or two on his record but the White Sox feel the just-signed minor leaguer is worthy of a second chance.
