On Tuesday the White Sox announced that they’d promoted prospect Micah Johnson from Birmingham to Triple-A Charlotte. Considering Johnson’s performance in Birmingham — a slash line of .329/.414/.466 with 10 stolen bases — the move certainly made sense.
But it also raised some questions.
The White Sox have a lot of middle infield options right now, and Johnson was adding to what was already a somewhat crowded situation in Charlotte, a situation that would only get worse when Jeff Keppinger was activated and the Sox likely sent Marcus Semien down to Charlotte.
But we don’t have to worry about that situation anymore.
