J.J. contract update
Sometime this week the Marlins plan to have discussions with agent Matt Sosnick regarding a contract for Josh Johnson.
Whether there is movement on a multiyear deal will depend on a key factor.
Sosnick claims if the Marlins will guarantee a four-year deal then he will listen.
Arbitration-eligible for the second time, Johnson is in line to make about $4.2 million in 2010, if both sides don’t reach a multiyear agreement for the 6-foot-7 right-hander.
