Scouting Report

Son of former Orioles Pitcher, Dave Johnson. Acquired by Orioles along in the George Sherrill trade. Selected in the Rule 5 Draft by the San Francisco Giants but was returned. Fastball is fairly straight, sitting in the low 90’s. Curveball is his best secondary offering, and is a slightly above-average pitch, but he struggles to command it and consistently leaves it up in the zone. Also throws a slider and change up. Has deception in his delivery which fools some hitters the first time through a lineup. Fly ball pitcher who fits best as a #5 starter in a big park or as a middle reliever.
