Body Type: 6-foot-1 195-pound prospect with an athletic build.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Threw from a ¾ arm slot and showed a quick arm. The delivery was overall methodical and he used good timing to created good leverage late in the delivery.
Fastball: 82-85 mph fastball was mostly true through the zone but did show some promising late arm side life at times.
Breaking Ball: 71-73 mph breaking ball showed slider shape and spin. Decent spin and bite on the pitch.
Changeup: 74-75 mph changeup was a quality offering. Showed some depth and good arm side run.
Pitchability: Good feel for his three pitch mix. Moved all three of his pitches to both sides of the plate consistently without a ton of effort.
Role: Shows the stuff and physicality you want from a starting pitcher. Fastball and changeup combo seemed to be his best two offerings at the event. Refining the slider to create a more ‘swing and miss’ type breaking ball will be of huge benefit to him.
Body Type: 6-foot-1, 195 pounds.  Athletic, sturdy build. 
Swing Mechanics: Open to balanced stance after stride. Longer swing path with a level plane produced. Progressing on timing and contacting the baseball more out in front of stance for greater contact and power output on a consistent basis.
Hit: Made average contact overall showing signs of pop potential still left in his bat that has been untapped. Will progress as he continues to develop over the next two years. 
Power: 89 mph exit velocity. Made loud contact with balls jumping off barrel. Plenty left in his tank as he stays through balls more efficiently. 
Offensive Projection: Middle of the order/ multiple roles.
Run: 4.81 seconds home to first.
Field:  Soft hands over at third base. Showed some of the better actions at third for the event. Moves well for a corner guy and worked through the ball. Further progress expected to come over the next two years. 
Throw: 84 mph across the diamond exhibiting a stronger arm. 
Defensive Projection: Third base.

A physical 6-foot-1 right-hander, Johnson displayed a true three pitch mix. The ball come jumps out of the hand. The fastball was consistently 81-83 mph with late life. Curveball is currently above average with late break at 70-72 mph. Johnson also showed one of the better changeups on the day at 73-75 mph with some arm side run. In the infield he plays with smooth footwork, creating angles to play through the baseball efficiently. Hands work well and transfer shows urgency. Arm is a well above average tool for class. At the plate the righty starts in an open setup, getting back to even with a controlled stride. An upper half dominant hitter who swings with intent. Barrel whips through the zone, showing impressive strength through contact. A gap threat to either side.

Home to First: 5.63
Infield Velocity: 86
Exit Velocity: 90

Starts in a tall, open setup. Gets back to even through a fluid knee pinch load and short stride. Starts with barrel vertical and gets on plane relatively early. Very good when path was level. Natural tools are developing. Looks to have feel at the plate. In the outfield he uses fluid footwork approaching the baseball. Plays through the ball nicely and stays smooth as he transitions into his throws. Would like to see him play with more sense of urgency. Throws from a lower arm slot with developing arm strength. At first base he brings well above average athleticism to the position. Showed feel around the bag and flashed well above average glove skills. Frame profile more at third base but has all the tools to be an above average defender at first base as well. On the mound the right-hander has a slower pace tempo to his low effort delivery. Arm speed is developing and he works through a high-¾ slot. Johnson was consistently in the zone with the pitch and showed the ability to work both sides of the plate with his 76-80 mph fastball. Didn’t show a secondary offering.
