Cardinals RB David Johnson isn’t going to make it as a baseball player

Apr 6, 2017, 6:54 PM | Updated: 6:55 pm

That’s not good.

Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson threw out the ceremonial first pitch for the Diamondbacks’ Thursday contest against the Giants. And by “threw out,” we mean he lofted the pitch a few feet short and four feet wide of home plate.

Before the lackluster toss, the running back polled his Twitter followers about what type of pitch he should throw out, and 63 percent requested he just get it to the plate. Does this count as coming through?

We’d go with a soft, no.

Johnson is apparently fully recovered from his MCL sprain that ended his season on Jan. 1.

While it didn’t show on the mound, it did show a tad bit better at the plate. Johnson took in a batting practice at Chase Field hours before the game.

At least he was looking good going through the baseball exercises by rocking the D-backs shirt, matte helmet and shades.
