Pirates, Cards, Astros Interested In Kelly Johnson

Earlier today we learned that the Diamondbacks have interest in free agent second baseman Kelly Johnson, and now we're able to add three more clubs to the list of suitors.  MLBTR learned from an industry source that the Pirates, Cardinals, and Astros have interest in Johnson.

It seems possible that Johnson might have to settle for a super-utility job, in that clubs are hoping he'll bounce back both offensively and defensively.  He's still a decent gamble for a few million, and if he signs a one-year deal he'll be arbitration-eligible after the 2010 season.
