Josh Johnson Report

Drafted 113th Overall (4th Rd), 2002 Draft, HS, Jenks, OK
Bats L/Throws R
20 YO, 6'7", 220 lbs

He's had good results, but I have some concerns. As you can see, he's a big kid. He has an average fastball, a changeup and a slider. At Jupiter this year, he put up a perfectly acceptable 3.46 ERA with 103 K's in 114.1 innings. The problem is that he also walked 49 hitters and uncorked 13 wild pitches. It also bears mentioning that the Florida State League is a great place to be a pitcher, inflating stats for pitchers. If he continues to struggle with his command, he'll get lit up in the upper minors.
