WATCH: Daniel Johnson Hits Monster Home Run in Scrimmage

The Cleveland Indians are in full preparation for the 2020 season which will start two weeks from Friday against the Kansas City Royals.

On Thursday night, the team had an intrasquad scrimmage and outfield prospect Daniel Johnson took full advantage of the opportunity to impress the coaching staff and front office.

Johnson was the centerpiece of the Yan Gomes trade back in November 2018 and spent last season with Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus hitting .290/.361/.507 along with 19 home runs and 77 runs batted in.

It’s unlikely he’ll make the opening day roster but if he continues to slug home runs like that, there’s no doubt the outfielder will be making an impact for the major league club soon.
