BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Since Rob Johnson cannot hit, frame pitches, or block balls, he’s an odd choice to be brought in to compete with Cruz for the backup catcher job.
2012 Johnson is a dreadful hitter. On days when both he and Alberto Gonzalez were in the Padres lineup, a strong case could be made to bat the pitcher seventh. Johnson has neither plate discipline nor power. If there is a bright side, it's that his poor on-base skills keep him from clogging the basepaths. He doesn't throw particularly well, but pitchers like working with him. Johnson is better than Jeff Mathis but worse than Gary Bennett, which puts him in the sweet spot of catchers who hang around forever for no obvious reason. The Mets signed him as insurance in case intended backup Mike Nickeas just flat out doesn't hit.
2011 Aside from a strong throwing arm, there’s very little to like about Johnson’s on-field abilities; any honest accounting of his positive attributes as a player boils down to “he has a nice personality,” a description which only rarely results in a date or a starting gig in the majors. The backstop seems to inspire confidence in his batterymates, but then again, so do the magnetic bands around their necks, which casts doubt upon their testimony. If anything, comparing the two does a disservice to the necklaces; while neither Johnson nor a piece of “performance jewelry” can regulate the body’s energy flow, only the latter actively impairs performance. The catcher routinely violated the prime directive of his position, leading the league in passed balls despite starting only 57 games—a rather dubious distinction for a guy who’s ostensibly in there for his defense—and his poor receiving technique rarely results in borderline strikes. These sins might be at least partially forgiven if Johnson had inflicted equal suffering on opposing pitchers, but even by his position’s low standards, his bat is a bust. Belatedly, the Mariners appeared to come to their senses, and demoted Johnson to Triple-A in early August. They did even better over the off-season, pawning him off on the Padres after designating him for assignment. Given Johnson's dubious talents, Jed Hoyer need merely hold a door for Jack Zduriencik at some later date to consider his "future considerations" debt fulfilled.
2010 Thanks in part to a strong throwing arm (he threw out 31 percent of base thieves), Johnson has developed a reputation as a strong defensive catcher, but he would have to be quite the defender to make up for his weak bat if he keeps getting regular playing time. Although he put up a strong-seeming offensive performance in Triple-A in 2008, his bat fizzled in the majors, because there just aren't a lot of secondary contributions via walks or power that he'll chip in on offense. With Adam Moore coming up behind him and Josh Bard signed to provide veteran sangfroid, Johnson’s days of getting 75 starts at catcher may already be in the past.
2009 Johnson's third crack at the PCL yielded almost as much improvement as his second, as his bat finally returned to its A-ball levels after the Mariners' curious decision to let him bypass the Southern League. His gap power and defensive prowess would make him a solid backup option now, but with Clement and Johjima ahead of him and Adam Moore hot on his trail, Johnson's at a career crossroad, asking the Lord above, "Have mercy, now trade poor Bob, if you please."
2008 We're beginning to wonder if Johnson is a fugitive from justice in one or more jurisdictions of the Southern League. Why else would the Mariners insist that he not see any time at Double-A, no matter how badly his bat suffered at Triple-A Tacoma? Johnson will likely get his third tour of the Pacific Coast League this season, the upside being that if he ever solves the league well enough to convince people he can hit, his reward will be to come to the majors as either Johjima's or Clement's back-up.
2007 In the mad rush to get their catching prospects to the majors, the Mariners made Johnson--with all of 80 High-A plate appearances under his belt--skip Double-A altogether and spend all of 2006 in Tacoma. Guess what? It was hard! Johnson`s a good catch-and-throw guy, but his bat is going to take some time to develop. Tacoma might not be big enough for Johnson and Clement to both get the playing time they need.
