A classic example of the power-armed Texas righthander, Jacob (Jake) Johansen is a rare example of a monster arm who also boasts a viable four-pitch toolkit. His mid-90's sinking heat is complemented by better than average curveballs, changeups and sliders, all of which show occasional plus flashes, though he doesn't yet command them very well. Some coaches think he's a future bullpen arm, but the Nationals will most certainly look to slow down his development, refine his pitching skills, and build him up into a bulldog starter first.
