The Miami Marlins likely will not trade starting pitcher Josh Johnson before Tuesday's trade deadline, reports ESPN.com's Jayson Stark.

The 28-year-old Johnson, a two-time All-Star, had been expected by many to be moved this July. The Marlins were reportedly asking for top prospects to get the pitcher.

The Texas Rangers were one of the teams believed to be interested in Johnson. But after the Angels traded for pitcher Zack Greinke, there were reports that Texas would not try to match Los Angeles' move by trading for Johnson.

Stark reports that Johnson didn't help his trade value with an average performance Sunday while 15 scouts looked on. Johnson gave up only one earned run in five innings but walked six batters.

Johnson is 6-7 this season with a 4.04 ERA in 21 starts.
