Career1,065.24.231.373.838.65
Drafted in the 13th round (406th overall) by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2005
On the season, Johnson threw a perfect game, another no-hitter, two one-hitters and two two-hitters. He finished the season with a 10-1, 0.45 record and 121 strikeouts in 71 innings to move into second place on Maryland's career wins list (34) and fifth place with 325 strikeouts. Johnson, whose father Dave pitched for the Pirates, Orioles and Tigers from 1987-93, isn't overpowering at 90-91 mph, but has a plus curveball to go with a cutter and changeup. He is poised and polished, and moves the ball around like a seasoned veteran. He plays third base when he doesn't pitch and set a state record for doubles in a season (19) and a career (41), while hitting .452. Johnson has committed to Boston College and may be a tough sign if he's not picked in the top six or eight rounds.
