2013 Out of Division II St. Edwards, Johnson was the Giants' sixth-round pick last year. He began his college career as a starter, but he flourished when he was shifted to the bullpen. His fastball velocity rose in the pen, and now sits in the mid-to-upper-90s and can reach triple digits. Beyond the fastball, Johnson also features an inconsistent, slurvy breaking ball. With some refining and development, he could be a late-inning reliever.
