Johnson is truly a plus defender at 2B and his range is a real benefit/run saver. He also has a plus arm for the position, so he can make plays when ranging up the middle.
Gordon/Dyson/Cain should be a really elite OF defense. Francoeur can play against lefties. And that's about it.
I don't know enough about this player to comment, but there have been two short pop-ups in shallow RF/foul territory, and Johnson has been no where to be found.
Is he getting a bad break on these balls? He's not slow, so where in the **** is he on balls that he clearly has the best chance at?
