Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 55 | Curveball: 50 | Changeup: 55 | Control: 45 | Overall: 45

Johnson flew under the radar at Cal State Northridge, missing most of his first two seasons with an elbow injury and subsequent Tommy John surgery and logging a 4.33 ERA as a redshirt sophomore in 2014. He created a stir in his first extended pro action the following year, flashing electric stuff while posting a 71/11 K/BB ratio across three levels. He hasn't been able to sustain that kind of success since, never getting into a rhythm in Double-A last season while losing a month to a hamstring injury.

Johnson still can flash a three-pitch mix that seems to stamp him as a starter. At his best, he can sit at 92-96 mph with sink on his fastball, confound hitters with plus changeups that tumble and offer some curveballs with power and depth. But he doesn't show that kind of stuff consistently because he collapses on the backside of his delivery, flattening his pitches and leaving them up in the strike zone.

While the Giants hold out hope that Johnson can improve his mechanics and become more consistent, they also declined to protect him on their 40-man roster after the 2017 season. He spent most of the season working with a 90-94 mph fastball while his control also regressed. If he doesn't start displaying more consistency, a bullpen move could be in his near future.
