Saints Add Former Wayzata High Standout, Hard Throwing Righty Andy Johnson

ST. PAUL, MN July 5, 2014

SAINTS ADD FORMER WAYZATA HIGH STANDOUT, HARD THROWING RIGHTY ANDY JOHNSON

 

ST. PAUL, MN (July 4, 2014) – Down to just eight pitchers on their roster the St. Paul Saints needed an arm.  They were able to find a hard throwing right-hander, who was a standout at Wayzata High School under Terry Steinbach and a Bradley University graduate, Andy Johnson.

 

            The 23-year-old Johnson pitched for the Bradley Braves over the last five years and was 2-5 with a 7.65 ERA in 38 appearances (four starts).  In 60.0 innings pitched he walked 42 and struck out 43 while opponents hit .332 against him. 

 

            Johnson’s best season was in 2011 when he went 1-0 with a 0.90 ERA in seven games.  In 10.0 innings he walked six and struck out eight while opponents hit .231 against him.  His season was cut short when he injured his elbow and had Tommy John Surgery which forced him to miss the remainder of 2011 and all of 2012.

 

            In high school Johnson was considered one of the top pitchers in the Midwest as a three-year letter winner for Steinbach at Wayzata High School.  He was rated the number two player in the Midwest by Perfect Game Crosschecker.  During his senior season Johnson earned Honorable Mention All-Conference honors and helped the Trojans win the conference championship.

 

            The Saints roster now stands at the league maximum 22 players, nine pitchers and 13 position players.
