by Mack | Posted on Monday, August 26th, 2013

 

Cobi Johnson   (currently ranked 16th RHP in draft)

7-2-13 – 79. Cobi Johnson- RHP, James W Mitchell (FL) HS http://www.ninebaseball.org/Wordpress/jeff-sullivans-top-100-2014-prospects/

 

7-5-13 – Cobi Johnson, RHP, James Mitchell HS (FL) – At 6’-4” and 180 pounds, the right-hander has the ideal size for a frontline starter. His fastball has touched 93 mph, and he adds a solid curveball. His change-up, like most prep pitchers, is still developing, but he shows a  good feel for pitching, and his athleticism will help with his progression. He has shown very good command of his stuff and had 103 K/14 BB over 71 innings as a junior. He also hit .426/.508/.703 over 30 games with 18 stolen bases. His velocity does drop off in later innings, but he should gain more stamina as he fills out his frame. Committed to Florida State. http://throughthefencebaseball.com/prep-arms-chicago-cubs/34856#Vp7zJ4JvRevfV1fR.99

 

7-11-13 – Jheremy Brown ‏@JBrownPG  – 2014 RHP Cobi Johnson (Holiday, FL) with an easy 1-2-3 first inning Loose, easy arm sitting 90-91 w tight, late breaking CB 74/76 #PGTourney

 

7-25-13 – Top 30 High School Prospects For 2014 Draft – 12. Cobi Johnson, RHP, Mitchell HS (FL) – 6’4/185, Draft Day Age: 18.58, Florida State commit – Quick Take: Johnson has been a little tough for scouts to see so far as he’s only pitched a few innings this summer to save his arm, wise counsel from his father: Blue Jays pitching coordinator Dane Johnson. I’ve been told Cobi has been sitting 90-93 and hitting 95 mph with a curveball that flashes plus potential from a smooth delivery and a super projectable 6’4 frame. http://sbb.scout.com/2/1310090.html

 

8-6-13 – Top pitchers – East Coast Professional Showcase, Syracuse, NY –  6. Cobi Johnson, RHP, James W. Mitchell HS (Fla.): The son of former big leaguer Dane Johnson, the big right-hander was very efficient, throwing just 28 pitches over three innings. He showed a very good breaking ball, had excellent command and threw everything downhill. http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20130806&content_id=56048786&vkey=news_mlb&c_id=mlb

 

2013 East Coast Pro Showcase Top 50 Prospects    – 33. Cobi Johnson – RHP,  James W Mitchell (FL) HS – 6’4, 180 RHP sat 88-90, touched 91. Johnson can really pitch and might have had the most impressive outing at ECP. http://www.ninebaseball.org/Wordpress/sullys-top-50-ecp-prospects/

8-13-13 – The Perfect Game All-American Classic in San Diego – * I was really impressive with Cobi Johnson (Mitchell High School, Fla.), sitting 90-92 with a very good change and above-average breaking ball. His delivery is very simple and clean, and I think there’s projection for more. Keep Johnson’s name in the back of your head as a guy who could rise up draft boards this year. http://mlbdraftinsider.com/2013/08/thoughts-on-perfect-game-all-american-classic/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter
