Blue Jays acquired RHP Josh Johnson from the Marlins in a 12-player trade.

After being limited to just nine starts in 2011 due to right shoulder inflammation, Johnson posted a 3.81 ERA and 165/65 K/BB ratio over 191 1/3 innings this season. The Blue Jays' rotation could look pretty good if Johnson and Brandon Morrow remain healthy, Ricky Romero bounces back and Mark Buehrle can eat innings like usual. Johnson is set to earn $13.75 million in 2013 before hitting free agency.
