Peace of mind for Josh Johnson will come once the non-waiver Trade Deadline passes at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Drafted by the Marlins in 2002, Johnson has made it clear that his priority is to remain with the only franchise he's ever known. But the decision is out of his hands. "This is all I know," Johnson said. "They've had me from the very beginning. I feel I owe it to them. The guys here are awesome. This is my favorite team ever to have been on, for sure. The guys here are great. We have fun." It hasn't been a vintage Johnson season, and the Marlins are measuring interest to see if a team presents a trade package tempting enough to take.
