Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune heard from Randy Johnson’s agent that the Cubs would be on the “short list” of teams Johnson would consider. Alan Nero, who represents Johnson, said that his client “would seem to be a perfect fit” for the Cubs.
Sullivan also spoke with Cubs sources who confirmed that they would be interested in Johnson if they can’t add Jake Peavy and keep Ryan Dempster.
Johnson, 45, had a 3.91 ERA in 184 innings last year. He’s just five career wins away from 300.
