While Johnson was bypassed by other organizational righties (like Codi Heuer and Matt Foster) in terms of getting a taste of the majors in the truncated 2020 season, he was at the Schaumburg alternate site last summer, and the team thinks enough of his major league readiness that he was protected last fall on the team’s 40-man roster.
