Toronto Blue Jays right-handed starter Josh Johnson cleared waivers, according to CBSSports.com.
Johnson can be traded to any team, though not probable. He was one of the best pitchers in the major leagues a few years ago but has struggled with injuries in recent years and carries a hefty salary. He is also not having a good year, performance-wise.
Johnson makes $13.75 million this season. He is 2-8 with a 6.20 ERA and is allowing opponents to bat .305 against him.
