2015

2014

Johnson may be one of the better under-the-radar pitching prospects in the league. He came out of college with some control issues, but those problems appear to have been alleviated, as evidenced by his 131:40 K:BB last season across Double-A Birmingham and Triple-A Charlotte. He boasts a mid-90s fastball to go with a polished slider and changeup, which helped him achieve a .197 batting average against in the minor leagues. He does not project to be a big strikeout pitcher in the majors despite striking out eight in a September start against the Twins. Still, low strikeout rate pitchers have had success with the White Sox in recent years, and Johnson should contend for a rotation spot in spring training.
