Erik Johnson is a 2008 RHP/3B with a 6'3'', 200 lb. frame from Los Altos, CA who attends Los Altos HS. He has a power pitcher's body, with good body strength and long and loose limbs. Johnson has a low effort delivery with good extension out front over his front leg. He'll occasionally fall of to first base. Johnson's fastball was very consistently in the 90-92 mph range with some late sink and run to it. He threw a slurve type curveball at 78 mph that had very good depth at times and was a solid secondary pitch for him. He also mixed in a couple of 81 mph change ups. Johnson's arm strength and easy fastball velocity make him a pitcher that scouts' can dream about. He is a good student who has a verbal commitment to Cal Berkeley.
