He attended spring training with the Yankees, though, and though he did not make the roster, the Yankees informed him that they would consider him if they needed pitchers later in the year. [33] On June 12, he allowed only two hits in a complete game shutout over the Senators, as the White Sox won the game 6–0. [36] John finished the year with a 12–17 record.

He had a 1.32 ERA during the winning streak, and his ERA from June 18 to the end of the season was 2.19. [4][136] He won that game, pitching six innings and allowing one run (unearned) against the Brewers in a 4–3 triumph.

[12] Despite all his losses, he was the only Chicago pitcher to start 10 or more games and post an ERA under 4.75. He gave up four unearned runs, the result of two errors by Bill Russell, the Dodger shortstop. [29] John was 6–11 on September 1, but he won his last three decisions to finish the season 9–11.
