TGB Client D.J. Johnson Signs With Miami Marlins
TGB client D.J. Johnson has agreed to terms with the Miami Marlins on a minor league agreement for the 2016 season. The right-hander has spent the last two seasons in the Minnesota Twins organization with the Fort Myers Miracle and Chattanooga Lookouts.
The Beaverton, Oregon native was lights out during his mid-season stint with Fort Myers in 2015, walking only 2 and striking out 12 in 10 innings pitched while not giving up an earned run. Upon returning to AA-Chattanooga, Johnson really hit his stride – in his final 14 appearances from July 23rd on, Johnson threw 20.2 innings, giving up only 4 ER (1.74 ERA) and striking out 21.
"The Marlins talked to me very early in free agency and I am thrilled to be part of that organization!"
