2014

Johnson is the reigning king of the minor league basepaths. Johnson stole an MiLB-leading 84 bags (in 110 attempts) in his ascent to Double-A. He posted a .373 OBP over his 601 plate appearances, but it is worth noting that rate decreased as the level of competition grew more difficult (.422 to .309 to .227). He should start 2014 at Double-A with the chance to finish the year at Triple-A if he can get on base more consistently. He had surgery to repair a nerve in his right elbow during the offseason, but he should be ready for spring training.
