WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Johansen has a great arm, throwing 93-95 MPH, and touching 97 with his fastball, which has arm side run. He throws a sharp slider with a lot of late movement, which is used as a strikeout pitch. The pitch is inconsistent, but is a plus pitch when it is on. His big issue has been command, and trying to pitch with his big 6′ 6″, 235 pound frame. If he can iron out the command issues, he could be a late inning relief prospect. Johansen comes from the same school as 2009 compensation round pick Victor Black, who also was drafted with command issues.
