The Texas Rangers, Los Angeles Angels, Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles are expected to make a push for Miami Marlins right-hander Josh Johnson, reports Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports:

Joel Sherman of The New York Post spoke with several sources that said they’d "be shocked" if the Marlins don’t trade Johnson. He says the Rangers are viewed as the favorites.

Meanwhile, Jayson Stark of ESPN isn’t so sure the 28-year-old will get moved, at least not this summer. While he believes the Marlins will do "a lot of listening" on Johnson, he expects the right-hander to still be with Miami come August 1.

An executive of another club told Stark that the Marlins are saying they will trade Johnson "only for a package centered around a young, star-caliber player who isn’t arbitration eligible. Stark goes on to speculate which player this could be; someone like a Mike Trout, Stephen Strasburg or Chris Sale.

Stark says the "list of clubs that are likely to make a run" at Johnson, or already have, include the Angels, Rangers, Blue Jays, Chicago White Sox, Boston Red Sox and Kansas City Royals.
