Solid frame at 6-foot-2. Works with an extremely quick pace on the mound and shows some swagger while doing it. Uses a step back as hands move over head and show rhythm in the break. High balance point before a bit of a drop and drive down the mound with shoulders elevated. Short arm circle and throws from a three-quarter arm slot. Fastball sat between 73-76 mph and topped at 77 a few times. Curveball started the day at 58-59 and lacked arm speed and feel early. The breaking ball picked up at 62-63 mph in the middle innings and displayed a much better feel for it and a 1/7 shape. Biggest takeaway from Johnson on the day is that he is a big time competitor and an even better teammate.

Johnson is 6-1 with an athletic frame that has plenty of projection left to it. He hits from the left side from an open athletic stance, heel lift stride, loads back to a bar, hips rotate violently, good balance to swing. Very quick to ball with batspeed and extension through it, level to slightly uphill swing path, used whole field, strength at contact and power potential, exit velocity was 91. At first base, gets body behind ball and fields with average hands and a wider base, high three quarters arm slot, position velocity was 80. On the mound, he throws from a high three-quarters arm slot with a shorter free arm action with some effort. Shoulders uphill and on line, lands square with an athletic finish. Fastball was 70-73, with downward plane and some late run. Curveball was 55-61 with good armspeed and 1/7 break. Change-up was 63-65 with good armspeed and fade.
