Johnson has been a model of consistency all year and had moved near the national lead in strikeouts with 130 in 94 innings, while walking just 22. He is Cal State Fullerton's career strikeout leader. He has command of three solid pitches, including a dynamite 85-86 mph slider that has a late, hard break. Scouts aren't sold on his 6-foot-2, 200-pound frame or his maximum-effort delivery, but he has won them over with his pitching savvy, bulldog approach and ability to hold his velocity deep into games. He projects to the middle of the first round, though a team near the top of the draft may take him earlier and try to cut a deal.
