COACH CORBIN QUOTE: RJ spent his first year as a redshirt and it will prove to be very beneficial for him as he moves forward in our program. I like his skill with the baseball and his feel for pitching. Ryan will most likely pitch out of the bullpen this year, but I can see him eventually in a starter role. He is a team guy all the way and very well liked by his peers.

2015 - Pinned with his first career loss in SEC Tournament championship game vs. Florida 5/24 allowing four runs on six hits over 1.2 innings... Gave up four runs on six hits over three-plus innings out of the bullpen in comeback win over Missouri 5/20... Earned the win at Louisville with 5.1 strong innings allowing two runs, one earned, on four hits with no walks and three strikeouts to improve to 5-0 on the season... Dominated MTSU over a career-long eight scoreless innings, scattering five hits with no walks and three strikeouts, became just the third VU pitcher this year to pitch at least eight innings joining Carson Fulmer and Walker Buehler... Tossed three scoreless innings out of the pen vs. Ole Miss 4/11 stranding his sixth straight inherited runner... Allowed three runs on four hits over 1.1 innings at Georgia 4/4... Picked up his third win of the year with four solid innings out of the bullpen vs. Tennessee 3/29 allowing one run on three hits with three strikeouts... Worked a perfect ninth inning to finish off series opening win over Tennessee 3/27... Tossed a career-best six innings to notch his second win of the season allowing one run on five hits vs. Tennessee Tech 3/17... Worked 1.1 innings vs. Arkansas 3/14 in first game of DH allowing one run on four hits... Earned his first collegiate victory with five perfect innings out of the bullpen vs. Quinnipiac 3/11 striking out a career-best nine... Turned in 4.2 no-hit, scoreless innings of relief vs. Illinois State 3/1... Gave up six runs, three earned, on seven hits with two walks and three strikeouts over five innings in his first career start vs. Western Kentucky 2/25... Made his collegiate debut with 2.1 scoreless innings of relief vs. Indiana State 2/21 in Port Charlotte, Fla. allowing two hits and striking out two.

Won 19 games in his career and posted a school record 1.04 ERA during the 2013 season.

ACADEMICS - Majoring in sociology.

PERSONAL - Ryan Mitchell Johnson... Born 6/30/95 in Austin, Texas... Only child of Steve and Shelley... Favorites include Robinson Cano (baseball player), Texas Rangers (baseball team), MLB The Show (video game), 42 (movie), Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Duck Dynasty (TV shows), steak (meal), Josh Abbott and Florida Georgia Line (musicians), Rice Krispie treats (late night snack), Clearwater, Fla. (vacation spot)... If he were not an athlete he would be a trainer... Lists being a wiffle ball pitcher as his oddest talent... Roommates with Jordan Sheffield... Chose Vanderbilt for the amazing academics and baseball team.
