RHP Josh Johnson all set for new start in Toronto



DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) — Josh Johnson is all set for a new start in Toronto.

Traded from the Miami Marlins to the Blue Jays in the offseason, Johnson says he’s ready for a lot of new changes.

Johnson was the Marlins’ ace going into last season. He’ll be the No. 3 man in the Toronto rotation, behind R.A. Dickey and Brandon Morrow and ahead of Mark Buehrle and Ricky Romero.

Johnson said Wednesday that he’s excited about Toronto’s prospects after the team spent heavily to upgrade its roster.
