From the Field: Jeff Johnson, p, Cleveland Indians

Jeff Johnson (2016 CLE AAA) signed custom scorecard, acquired in Columbus

Jeff Johnson was selected by Indians in 10th round of 2011 draft out of Cal Poly.

Over five seasons in the minors (210 innings) he has went 9-9 with 154 hits, 237 K’s and 78 walks. Good for a 2.57 ERA/1.10 WHIP. He has been nothing short of fantastic.

This season he spent the entire year in AAA, and went 4-1 with a 2.77 ERA/1.25 WHIP over 52 innings, striking out 56.

Johnson clearly has nothing left to prove in the minors, and assuming that he does not get sucked up in the Rule 5 draft, he should be fighting for a pen spot with the big league club come February.

That said, if I was a major league team with a spot on the roster to burn, I would totally snatch him up in the Rule 5. I could see him sticking in the majors for the whole season, especially since he is so effective against RHB (.165 BA, vs. .278 to lefties).
