That is a lot of talent ahead of him so for Johnson to make the majors, he needs to keep up his strong performances. Even then, it would be as a relief option due to six starters in the majors ahead of him as well. He may have trouble getting a starting spot at Indy if the Locke/McPherson loser for fifth spot returns to Indy.
As for having major league stuff, it is fringe, but serviceable in a lefty relief role. Decent fastball, good changeup
