BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2009 Blake Johnson came with Pimentel from the Dodgers in the deal for Elmer Dessens, and like his trade partner hit a massive wall at Double-A. He's got great command, but is just far too hittable to carve out a career at the upper levels.
2008 Like Julio Pimentel, Blake Johnson was acquired from the Dodgers as an incentive for taking on Odalis Perez's contract, but it was a bad bribe. Johnson has excellent command of average stuff, and the attrition rate for A-ball pitchers of that description is enormous.
2007 Part of the swag the Royals got from the Dodgers in gratitude for taking Odalis Perez off their hands, Johnson is a very polished high school product who walked just 19 batters in 117 innings last season. His velocity is marginal, though he still has some projection left. After just three appearances with High Desert, he was shut down with a tender elbow. The biggest concern with Johnson is that Dodgers` scouting director Logan White is so good at identifying the impact players in the draft that you have to assume any player he`s willing to give up must have something wrong with him.
