Potential Targets: Josh Johnson



    Target: Josh Johnson, RHP

    2013 stats:2-8 record, 6.20 ERA, 83 strikeouts, 30 walks, 81.1 innings

    Johnson has long been a guy the Rangers have coveted, dating back to his days with the Florida/Miami Marlins. Since being traded to Toronto, Johnson has had awful injury luck and just hasn't been the dominant workhorse he once was. The plus for the Rangers? Well, his 2013 numbers weren't exactly what you'd want in a free agent year, meaning he could possibly be had on the cheap. Think one-year, incentive-laden deal here. The Rangers have made a name for themselves in recent years by taking low-risk chances on reclamation projects like Joe Nathan, Joakim Soria and Lance Berkman, with varying levels of success. Johnson would definitely fit into that realm and if he can get back to what he was, it could be a steal for the Rangers.
