Pierce Johnson promoted to Daytona!
Great news today for Cubs top pitching prospect Pierce Johnson as he was promoted today from Class A Kane County to High A Daytona. Johnson earned every bit of this promotion, the 2012 first round pick (supplemental, 43rd overall) was 5-5 with a 3.10 ERA in 13 starts with the Cougars. Johnson is moving fast, in his first half season in the Cubs organization he pitched for the AZL Cubs, and for the Boise Hawks. He started 2013 with Kane County and now is making the jump to Daytona, that’s four levels in just about a calendar year, the future is very bright for Pierce Johnson, congrats!
