Showing vast improvement and exhibiting a more relaxed approach in an event setting, Johanson took his best BP of the year at a PBR event. Over the past 3-4 months, Sam's body which has quality muscle tone and definition, has taken another step forward, as he looks to have added 10-15 Lbs of chiseled muscle and really looks the part now. The swing is more controlled and easy, though he does have a tendency to leak and jump at the baseball, yet toned it down somewhat in this look. The hand and bat speeds of 24.3 and 74.8 have steadily jumped over the past 6 months and showed an EV high of 97.1. A bit behind others in his class, Sam had a fantastic summer at the American Legion level and looks to take that next step in the upcoming spring HS season.

Sam shows athleticism and quick twitch on the defensive side of the ball, and run down balls in either direction and over his head to make plays. He gets solid jumps off the bat and his speed allows his range to expand and get to the ball quick. Has run some sub 7.0’s in the past and is a tick above that now. Offensively he does need to improve his approach at the plate and learn a plan of how to attack pitchers and read sequences and tendencies of pitchers in how they are attacking him, to get his “A” swings off in game conditions. Just needs to relax at the plate in BP to allow his natural strength and hand speed to play. Tends to over swing and shows late bat speed and needs to know when to play out front with the barrel in count sequences. Tends to fire late and miss hit balls. There’s a ton of potential here with added work and focus on what plan he takes to the plate.

A Lg frame with a lean ripped athletic build with twitch. Reminds me of a poor man’s Hunter Pence as he does things a bit crude, yet has strength, bat speed, potential raw speed that didn’t show up in the 60, yet have seen him at a sub-7 before and watched him numerous times live on the bases. The offense is intriguing as he has a Blast bat speed of 74.3 and abv avg EV of 93.5. He features an even prop square stance with his bat held behind the ear at a flatter angle and then leans back and lifts his front foot down into a firmer foot strike. The hands circle and rotate the bat to a 45 at launch, he then casts the bat and is a bit long in his approach to the ball, yet has hand and bat speed to create leverage with natural twitchy hand strength, to drive the baseball hard straight away and to the pull side. The ball jumps off his bat. In the OF, his actions are raw and when he receives the ball, he hops into a one piece long arching arm action. There is natural arm strength and he needs to shorten the stroke and with 3 years of HS left, time is on his side. There is no denying there are raw tools to develop for the next level, as he is a hard worker with athleticism, bat speed, strength, running ability and a desire to get better. I will be able to see his progress locally moving forward.
