Heartland Scout Day: Highly projectible with a long, athletic body type (6-foot-2, 185-pounds), loose arm and low effort delivery, the right-hander impressed with control of three pitches from a three-quarter slot. His 6.49’ of average fastball extension led the event and his spin score of 26 was second best on the Heartland staff. His fastball peaked at 89 mph, mostly sitting 87-88 mph with fair life. He showed control and feel for a low-70s curveball (2400+ rpm) and subtracted spin on his 77-79 mph sinking changenup (1600 rpm). A true freshman Johnson has many characteristics of a guy that should see significant velocity gains over the next couple of years.
