TGB Signs D.J. Johnson
True Gravity Baseball is proud to announce the signing of D.J. Johnson. Johnson went undrafted but was signed by the Tampa Bay Rays in 2010. After being released by the club, Johnson pitched for the Traverse City Beach Bums of the Frontier League before being signed by the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Beaverton, Oregon native spent parts of two seasons in the Diamondbacks organization before being released and returning to Traverse City. In 2014 the Minnesota Twins negotiated a contract with the hard-throwing right-hander, and he finished the season with the High-A club in Fort Myers. Johnson will be reporting to the Twins’ AA affiliate in New Britain for the 2015 season.
