2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Johnson, a first-round draft pick in 2012, is a well-filled out left-hander who possesses an advanced feel for pitching. His 2012 season was cut short when he suffered some facial fractures after being struck by a batted ball. He has a low-90s heater that can tick up to 95 mph when needed. Johnson mixes in a curve and change-up. Command isn't at a high level just yet. He'll need to work on honing his arsenal and developing a level of consistency with each. As he moves along in the coming years, staying in shape will be key. His body type can blow up if he's not attentive to his fitness. He'll be building his innings up at Low-A Greenville, working on all of his pitches and locating down in the zone. Johnson can have success at the lower levels; whether he maintains a path as a starter is something we'll find out when he reaches the higher levels.
