Drafted in the 4th round (123rd overall) by the Seattle Mariners in 2004 (signed for $260,000)
C Rob Johnson turned down $275,000 from the Phillies last year after they drafted him in the 18th round out of Saddleback (Calif.) JC. Scouts were disappointed that he didn't hit for more power this spring, but he still could go in the sixth to eighth round if he's deemed signable. Johnson is athletic for a catcher at 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds. He has solid catch-and-throw skills and runs well for his position. He needs to quicken his trigger and shorten the length of his swing, and improve his throwing accuracy.
