He can hit, though he’s a little streaky. He’s still pretty young at 27. Injuries have prevented him from really putting up a full season. Keys for him will be stay healthy, play solid enough defense and D’backs fans will end up liking him more than they think they do now.
Johnson’s not very good. We didn’t give up much but I was hoping we would have gotten someone at least average lol… Hopefully he’ll be like Hill? Doubt it though.
The story's author:
Johnson has been hitting .279/.329/.428 with 8 Home Runs and has been worth 0.5 bWAR so far this year for the Astros. It screams "Average", but average is better than what the D'Backs have been getting from the hot corner this season.
According to Nick Piecoro, those two were never held in high esteem by the Kevin Towers regime, and perhaps a move to the Astros organization will be a fresh start for them.
