NL Recaps – Josh Johnson Strikes Out 9 Braves – Scouts Watching

Josh Johnson Miami Marlins NewsMIAMI –  Josh Johnson was nearly perfect for six innings allowing just one hit while striking out nine.

Johnson left the game after 87 pitches with a blister on his right middle finger and the Miami Marlins beat the Atlanta Braves 2-1 .

Scouts from the Boston Red Sox and the Texas Rangers were in attendance to watch Johnson pitch, and he did not disappoint.

Johnson was as sharp as he has been all year, and the performance will likely intensify trade rumors surrounding Johnson.

Earlier in the day the Marlins dealt  Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante for pitching prospect Jacob Turner, and Rob Brantley and Brian Flynn to the Tigers, adding fuel to the speculation that the Marlins may be dealing Johnson as well.

Emilio Bonifacio homered for the Marlins and Carlos Lee drove in a run with a single.
