Player Notes
Athletics designated RHP Jim Johnson for assignment.

Advice: Oakland GM Billy Beane made a rare mistake this winter when he traded for Johnson and his $10 million salary for 2014. The right-hander had poor peripherals in Baltimore despite his dominant save totals and wound up posting a brutal 6.92 ERA in 40 1/3 innings with the A's. Johnson should latch on with a new team pretty quickly as a reclamation project, but he's probably done getting save opportunities.

Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins "remain interested" in Jim Johnson.

Advice: The Marlins nearly completed a deal for Johnson last month before opting for Bryan Morris instead. However, it appears they haven't given up on acquiring the struggling former closer, with Spencer saying the club has discussed sending pitching prospect Adam Conley to Oakland for the reliever. Johnson holds a 6.25 ERA with 23 walks in 40 innings this season and is making $10 million. The A's will have to pick up the bulk of the remainder of his contract in any trade.

According to John Hickey of the Oakland Tribune, the Athletics remain eager to find a new home for former closer Jim Johnson.

Advice: The catch is that the A's don't want to have to eat any of Johnson's $10 million contract. With a 6.25 ERA, 1.96 WHIP and 28/23 K/BB ratio through his 40 1/3 innings on the season, it's unlikely that any interested parties are going to come calling to acquire the veteran right-hander's services.
