Report: Blue Jays acquire Josh Johnson, Jose Reyes from Marlins

Wednesday November 14th, 2012

The Toronto Blue Jays and Miami Marlins are close to agreeing to a blockbuster deal that would send shortstop Jose Reyes and pitchers Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle to Toronto, as first reported by's Jon Paul Morosi and Ken Rosenthal.

ESPN's Buster Olney is reporting that top outfield prospect Jake Marisnick will be included in the package headed to Miami, along with veteran shortstop Yunel Escobar.

The Marlins considered trading Johnson, a 28-year-old right-hander who finished fifth in Cy Young voting in 2010, before the trade deadline last season, in the midst of his 8-14 campaign. Buehrle went 13-13 with a 3.74 ERA last year, his first with Miami after signing a four-year, $58-million contract.
