Nick Johnson to Marlins

According to, the Florida Marlins have acquired 1B Nick Johnson from the Washington Nationals in exchange for AA prospect Aaron Thompson.

Johnson is hitting .295 with 6HR and 44RBI for the Nationals.

Johnson turns 31 this September, and will become a Free Agent after this season. The Nationals reportedly will pay $1.8 million remaining on Johnson’s contract.

I’m a big Murphy fan, but you have to wonder if Johnson could have been a good fit for the Mets this year.
