Adam Johnson Report

Adam Johnson, RHP, Minnesota Twins
Drafted 2nd Overall, 2000 Draft, Cal State Fullerton
Bats R/Throws R
26 YO, 6'2", 210 lbs

The writing is on the wall. Johnson hasn't had a really good year since 2001, and things don't seem to be improving. He still strikes out a lot of hitters, but he gives up too many baserunners, too many home runs, and way too many runs. They've tried moving him to the rotation. They've tried moving him back to the pen. It just isn't working. He needs a change of scenery in the worst way.

Here are the gory details of 2004. Johnson spent all of 2004 in Rochester, where he recorded a 6.01 ERA, 86 K's, 29 walks, 99 hits, and 10 home runs allowed in 82 1/3 innings.

ETA: Doubtful that he will "arrive"
1 1/2 Stars
