Is this kid in the starting lineup for good? Rotoworld doesn't seem to think so:

Josh Johnson struck out a career-high eight batters and held the Mets to just an unearned run in seven innings of work on Friday to improve to 4-2.
Johnson walked just two and gave up a pair of singles in the outing. He's now given up a total of five earned runs in 29 2/3 innings of work over five starts. Johnson should cool off eventually, but he still should have some value in NL-only leagues while in the rotation. He's certainly worth using while playing well and facing the Giants next time out.
Sounds like he's got the tools and the size and he's put it together.
