Micah Johnson Making Positive Strides

While compiling my top 30 prospects list as part of the most recent FutureSox Top 25 Prospects list, I found Micah Johnson to be the most difficult prospect to place. The reason for this was because his 2013 season was so contrasting. Johnson excelled in the first half of the season with Kannapolis, hitting .342/.422/.530... Read more »
