Jake Johnson is a 2007 right hand hitting catcher from La Mirada HS, residing in La Mirada, CA. Johnson has a strong and physical build on a well-developed 6'2" 200 lb. frame. He is as strong as he looks and that strength comes out in a few areas of his game. Johnson was ranked #82 among PG National Top 100 position players and showed the power/power combination that is prized in catcher... power arm and power in the bat. At the plate Johnson gets the attention of scouts pretty quickly because the ball comes off his bat very well. He makes a lot of hard and loud barrel contact in BP and flashes that ability in games. His barrel is in the zone for a length of time and results in him having the ability to spray the ball with power to all fields. For the most part his body says that he has a pull side approach but he can be late and still drive the ball the other way as his arms get extension in his swing. Johnson is a middle of the order type bat, somewhere in the 5-7 spot where his power will drive in runs. Behind the plate he showed that he has strong hands and did a nice job of catching some pitchers with big velocity. He also blocked the ball in the dirt well. Johnson has a pretty big arm and a good exchange from glove to hand. His feet work and he gets in good position to throw. He showed sub 2.0 pop times in between innings and was on the bag with a 2.06 toss in a game. Johnson has a chance to be a very solid catch/throw prospect, probably a bit above average. He ran 4.99 home/1st with a 7.57 60 but is more athletic behind the plate than those times suggest. With good receiving and catch/throw skills to go with the pop in his bat, Johnson is going to generate plenty of interest from the area scouts. There are not a lot of young catchers with his overall skill set and those skills for him are pretty playable right now.

Jake is a 2007 grad from La Mirada, California with a large frame and durable, strong build. He has slopping shoulders and big hands and feet. Jake played all over the field for us at the showcase, catching, pitching and playing some third base. His build and foot speed probably profile him best behind the plate. Jake's arm strength and athletic ability play well at catcher. As a hitter, Jake has a still set up with little weight transfer. His strong hands enable him to develop good bat speed and his simple, compact and repeatable swing guarantees conistent solid contact. Jake looks like the type who has a good combination of power and ability to hit for a high average. He did a great job in one at bat going down to get a low pitch and lifting out over the left field fence and had a couple of other nice hits. Jake threw just one inning from the mound but showed a nice balanced delivery and a good feel for the strike zone. His fastball was 83 mph and his curveball 69. While we like him more as a hitter right now, Jake looks like he should be a successful pitcher as well. Jake is a good student as well.
