Jeff Ellis: Jeffrey Johnson is this year’s ghost man. He is not listed by any of the major scouting sites. He is a right handed pitcher who was mostly a closer for Caly Poly. He saw a big jump before his junior year in velocity going from the mid 80’s to peaking at 95 before this year began. He also throws a plus splitter. This allowed him to strike out 40 hitters in 27 innings and have a 1.63 ERA. He did miss some time thanks to tendinitis this year or his numbers could have been even better. He was linked to the Indians and the Red Sox in a local article, so there you go Tribe fans we stole a player from Boston. So Johnson is another power arm to throw into the large pool of prospects for the Indians bullpen.
