According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the Blue Jays have not held any contract extension talks with Josh Johnson.

Johnson's agent, Matt Sosnick, told Olney that there "hasn't been any conversation" with the Jays and the expectation is that he'll open next season without a new contract. "We've told them we're open to anything," Sosnick said. "But it make senses for both of us to see how he pitches at the beginning of the year." Johnson, in the final season of a four-year contract, is set to make $13.75 million in 2013 before becoming a free agent. He could be one of the top pitchers available next offseason.
