No Market For Reed Johnson

According to a source of Jeff Blair of the Globe and Mail, the market for left fielder Reed Johnson is "non-existent."  This is not a big surprise – Johnson was a candidate to be non-tendered this winter.  He had back surgery in April and is set to earn $3.27MM in ’08.

Blair speculates that the Jays may be inclined to listen to offers for Adam Lind.  Back in November, ESPN’s Keith Law had this to say about Lind:

Lind has a classic left-hander’s swing and good hand-eye coordination. His power is fringe-average but projects to above-average. He’s best suited to play first base, but it’s possible to live with his defense in left because of how he’ll hit.
