OAKLAND -- Steve Johnson (right lat strain) pitched five innings for Triple- A Norfolk in his first rehab start, allowing four runs on six hits with a walk. He struck out four.
The Orioles aren't interested in the results as much as how he came out of the appearance.
"He's good," manager Buck Showalter said. "He'll make his next start. So far he feels good physically."
