Tribe restocks the cupboard

Meet Daniel Joihnson - #22 prospect

After letting Michael Brantley and Brandon Guyer walk in free agency, the Tribe made a seemingly minor deal at Thanksgiving that netted OF prospect Daniel Johnson. Manager Tito Francona had this to say about the prospect in an interview with Mandy Bell of MLB.com.


“There’s so much to like about him,” Francona said. “Work ethic, the kind of kid he is. When you see him play well and you see, ‘Whoa, that’s what that could be.’ Now, they grow into consistency. They grow into being able to sit back on an offspeed pitch. But you can’t teach guys to hit a fastball. If they can’t get to a fastball, they can’t get to it. Guys that can get to a fastball, you can teach them."
