He's been a steady Friday starter at Southeast Louisiana, but whatever team picks Johnson will have a choice to make: they could keep him in the rotation and hope he can improve his changeup. Or they could move him to the bullpen where his 91-92 mph fastball is more likely to end up at 93-95 and his above-average slider may get a little sharper. Johnson's delivery includes a hip turn and tuck that adds deception, and he has shown solid average control.
