Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 50 | Run: 45 | Arm: 50 | Field: 50 | Overall: 45

Johnson began his college career at the University of Georgia, but found himself stuck behind three infielders who could all go in the top five rounds in this year's Draft. So after his freshman season with the Bulldogs in 2018, he transferred to Chipola Junior College in Florida. The move paid off as the infielder put up big numbers and landed in the fourth round of the 2019 Draft. The Reds signed him for over $100,000 below pick value, which helped them also land Tyler Callihan and Rece Hinds.

The switch-hitter showed the ability to hit for average and power in junior college and it's his bat that will carry him. He has easy power from the left side of the plate and has a good right-handed swing as well, with more gap power from that side. A shortstop in high school, Johnson moved to second base at Chipola because it had a superior defender there and, to his credit, he was willing to do whatever was needed to make the team better. He has decent hands and a solid arm and has gotten to move back to shortstop during his pro debut. His somewhat limited range might make second the best spot for him long-term, and he continued to get work there as well in his first summer of pro ball.

Johnson's ceiling is as a bat-first middle infielder, one who could be a regular at second, with an outside shot at playing short. Because of his offensive toolset, he has a pretty high floor as an offensive-minded utility player who can move around the infield.
