The son of the longtime Blue Jays minor league pitching coordinator Dane Johnson, Cobi is an advanced, polished arm with a high baseball IQ. Johnson had a strong summer on the showcase circuit but he has missed time this spring due to elbow inflammation. But he has looked healthy in two starts since his return. His fastball has been 87-90, touching 92 this spring, a tick lower than expected. Johnson creates tough angles and deception for hitters, hiding the ball well from a cross-body delivery that starts on the far third base side of the rubber. He gets downhill plane from a high three-quarters arm slot and pitches in the lower half of the strike zone. His plane and fastball life produced groundballs in drove on the showcase circuit. Johnson throws with ease and projects to have plus control, capable of locating well to both sides of the plate. The Florida State commit projects to have a plus curveball and at least an average changeup. The 6-foot-4, 188-pound Johnson has a lean, trim build that offers projection. He could make a strong move back up draft boards with a strong showing at the Florida high school all-star game in Sebring at the end of May. Evaluators have said that Johnson's signability has been tough to gauge.
