The Blue Jays don't have to worry about losing another one of their expensive Miami acquisitions at this point, as Josh Johnson's MRI comes up clean.
The Miami Marlins completed a major trade involving a number of players on their team. One of the players that left the team was Josh Johnson, who was one of the last remaining players from the 2006 era team.
Even after acquiring Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle from the Miami Marlins earlier this week, the Toronto Blue Jays are still looking to add to their starting pitching depth.
Josh Johnson wasn't part of the Marlins' "sell-a-thon" during the 2012 season but the club could soon decide whether or not JJ will be part of the organization's plans for 2013 and beyond.
The Miami Marlins were expecting a lot of the team's starting pitcher rotation, and those expectations began with a bounce back by Josh Johnson. Johnson pitched worse than he has since his rookie year, but he made up for it with a healthy season.
Last night, the Miami Marlins shut down Josh Johnson for his final scheduled start of the season, and it appears the Fish will also end Mark Buehrle's season one start short as well.
The Miami Marlins have to determine whether Josh Johnson is worthy of a contract extension or if he should leave after 2013. This decision is the sole determinant for whether should trade Johnson or not.veloci
