Marlins Expect To Keep Josh Johnson

The Marlins told teams today they're going to keep Josh Johnson barring something unforeseen, reports ESPN's Jayson Stark.  The 28-year-old is under contract through 2013.  Johnson has been healthy this year, though his strikeout rate and fastball velocity are down and he's allowed more hits than innings pitched.  The Marlins wouldn't be trading him at peak value, but it never hurts to listen.
