Giants Sign 3rd Round Pick Chase Johnson out of “Harvard West”/Cal Poly SLO

By Stuart Jones

The Giants are going to be announcing some draft signings today, in addition to their first rounder, which I wrote about earlier today. Once again, from Jim Callis:

Bleacher Report has done a scouting report on Chase Johnson which you can check out here. You’ll notice that his big league player comp is Octavio Dotel, which if you’re drafting a reliever, you could do worse.

With this signing of Johnson for $440,00, the Giants are now under budget according to Baseball America, but there’s probably going to be a lot of updating coming soon…

Hoping that update comes all at one time, and we’ll make sure to get that information to you once we get it.
