SURPRISE, Ariz. — East Bladen High grad Saquan Johnon’s hitting woes have followed him to Arizona after all.

Hohnson, who was drafted in the 28th round by the Texas Rangers in 2011, bookmarked a pair of games over the weekend in which he did not get into the lineup with games where he did not record a hit.

On Thursday, Johnson Arizona Rookie League Rangers knocked off the Angels 7-2, but Johnson went 0-for-3 with two walks, a strikeout and scored a run.

After sitting through the next two games — a 4-0 win over the Diamondbacks on Friday and 7-1 win over the mariners on Saturday — Johnson was inserted in the No. 3 hole in the lineup for Sunday’s game against the Mariners.

Johnson again took the collar, this time 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts, a goundout and a flyout. The Rangers dropped a 3-1 decision.

After a hot start in his return to the Arizona Rookie League, Johnson’s batting average has dropped to .256, and he has gone just 3-for-24 in his last seven games.

Despite Sunday’s loss, the Rangers lead the Arizona League West with a 13-7 mark and are 30-18 overall this season.
