Good young right handed pitcher. Pitched in Class-A Lansing in 2012. Has potential, but also a ceiling. Not in the top twenty among Blue Jays prospects. Would be top twenty for quite a few teams with more shallow systems.

If he can regain that sort of form, we're looking at a potential Cy young candidate.
I just hope he comes back in shape and form.

What this deal does is make the jays a destination for FA again knowing they are serious about winning. Player may now say hey maybe I can be your left fielder or DH

Guys, what does this trade really mean for the jays? Did the jays just turn into contenders? I haven't been following baseball like I used to but everyone is so excited about this blockbuster trade and I have no idea what it really means for the jays lol..

Are we up there now with the red sox/yankees? Makes me glad that we actually have a toronto sports team that is doing the little things right to turn into a legit contender.

Exactly. Ninja swag is the only phrase to describe it.

Even if he doesn't and he's closer to what he is last year, this is a far better gamble then signing a big name pitcher of free agency.

This way we get to try out Johnson for a year and see where he's at. If he's worth 20M at the end of the season, we can pay him that(I hope). If he's not, we can pay him what he's worth.

What this does is give us the ability is that we get to try out Johnson and see where he's at. I can't begin to outline how good this deal is for us.

Red Sox aren't even close to us.

Yankees may still be a reach, I mean they are the Yankees, but the Jays have fixed huge, and I mean HUGE holes from just this one deal.

He's not nearly as good as the big 3. Could be a #4/5 but will likely be a reliever in the bigs.

Im happy with the trade, but im a little surprised everyone is thrilled. Its a good trade, but it has the potential to really back fire. We got back some fragile guys and we gave up a lot of good prospects.
