C | RaysTB
Name: Charles Edward Johnson
Born: Jul 20, 1971 in Fort Pierce, Fla. USA
College: Miami
Ht.: 6'2" / Wt.: 215 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 1st round (28th overall) by the Florida Marlins in 1992 (signed for $575,000)
Johnson, a first-round pick out of high school, can catch and throw with the best of them, but doesn’t handle fastballs up and in and breaking balls. His offensive worth comes from raw power, but he hit only one home run in his first 100 at-bats this spring. One detractor believes he gets by on his reputation.
