2023 Fantasy Outlook
With the fourth-overall pick in the 2022 draft, the Pirates landed one of the most highly-touted prep hitters in years. Some scouts go all the way back to Joe Mauer or Ken Griffey Jr. when trying to find a comparable high-school hitter to Johnson. While prep position players with a 70-grade hit tool are rare, it's even rarer to see likely second basemen who stand 5-foot-8 getting selected in the top five of the draft. He played shortstop in high school in Atlanta but primarily played second base in his pro debut, and that's where he figures to stick. Johnson got off to a slow start in his 23-game pro debut across complex ball and Single-A, but he closed strong, slashing .357/.500/.607 with one home run, four doubles, four steals and an 11:10 K:BB over his last 10 games. The hope is that he remains hit-over-power and naturally gets to 20-plus homer pop rather than selling out for power at the expense of his greatest tool. He is already physically maxed out and doesn't grade well as a runner, but Johnson attempted seven steals in his first 23 games, so perhaps he could chip in double-digit steals in the majors if he develops into an on-base machine. The main thing is the hit tool, however. If he hits as expected, he will be a sought-after fantasy asset for a decade-plus. Johnson should spend most of his age-18/19 season at High-A.

Running again

March 27, 2023
Johnson (hamstring) is in the midst of the second week of his running progression, but the Pirates believe he may need longer than his initial projected recovery timeline of 4-to-6 weeks before he's ready to make his 2023 debut, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
Stumpf notes that Johnson hasn't hit any roadblocks in his recovery from the right hamstring strain he suffered in late February, but his season debut is expected to be pushed back further because the Pirates identified aspects of his running mechanics they were wanting to fix. The No. 4 overall selection in the 2022 First-Year Player Draft, Johnson finished his first professional season at Single-A Bradenton and will either report to that affiliate once healthy or make the jump to High-A Greensboro.
