BREAKING: Termarr Johnson Getting Promotion to High-A Greensboro



Pirates prospects, Termarr Johnson

A source has confirmed to Pittsburgh Baseball Now that Pittsburgh Pirates 2022 first-round pick, Termarr Johnson is getting promoted to High-A Greensboro.

This promotion isn’t anything surprising, but it’s a well deserved promotion towards the end of the season for Johnson.

Last year’s first-rounder has been mashing the ball with the Bradenton Marauders, and more importantly, he’s shown a more advanced eye and discipline as of late.

Johnson has bumped his BB% up to an eye-opening 21.8%, which is 2.9 percentage points higher than last year in Bradenton.

Looking at Johnson’s advanced stats, he has a 142 wRC+ which is 40 points above the average, and his wOBA has bumped up to an extremely solid .413.

Johnson’s basic stat line reads .244/.419/.448 (.867 OPS). In addition, Johnson has 13 homers and driven in 44 runs in 250 at-bats.

It had been an especially hot month of July for Johnson, who posted a 1.013 OPS with six home runs and 18 RBIs in 24 games played before the calendar flipped to August.

Johnson began the season on the injured list after suffering a hamstring injury in spring training but has continued to play better as the season has marched on.
