2023 Player Outlook
While the next save in Johnson's major league career will be his first, he is the best option in Colorado's bullpen to back up Bard. The Rockies gave him a $5 million contract for 2023 to bring him in from San Diego after he had success with the Padres. Johnson only made it through 14.1 innings last season, and his 5.02 ERA left something to be desired, but his 2.76 xERA paints a better picture after he had a 3.22 ERA in 58.2 innings in 2021. Walks are going to be a problem here, and there is no stand-alone value, but if there are available saves, keep him in mind.
