Josh Johnson Rumors: Marlins Seek Jurickson Profar From Texas Rangers

If the Texas Rangers are going to acquire Josh Johnson from the Miami Marlins, the conversation will apparently have to start with Jurickson Profar.

So, needless to say, a conversation won't really occur between the Rangers and Marlins. According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, it would take a Profar-type piece just to start a conversation for Miami's oft-injured ace.

Of course, the Marlins aren't going to come out and say, "We'll take your B and C prospects in exchange for Johnson," -- not with another year on Johnson's contract. It's only logical that the Marlins ask for the sun, the moon and the stars for Johnson at first.

Needless to say though, if the price doesn't drop considerably, then Johnson isn't going to be traded -- at least not to the Rangers, and it's tough to imagine a team giving up one of the best prospects in baseball and then a "lot more" on top of it for Johnson, who has a long history of injury woes.
