RHP // Stephen Johnson has a funky delivery to say the least. Compare it to Steven Okert, but from the right side, and way weirder. But it makes this reliever's mid-90s fastball and "frisbee" slider that much better. The motion sort of resembles a mix between Sergio Romo and Madison Bumgarner. Okay, enough comparisons. Regardless of who he looks like, Johnson is known to be one of the hardest workers in the system, and if he can get his walk rate down, his pitches all trend towards plus. He could sneak into the bigs late in 2016.
