Johnson an unlikely target
With the D-backs looking for a veteran first baseman, there are some that have speculated free agent Nick Johnson would be a good choice. While that may be the case, it seems unlikely given that there has been significant interest in him.
Foxsports.com reported recently that the Mariners, Giants, Mets and Yankees all had interest in Johnson, who will be looking for a multi-year deal.
With a little more than $10 million to spend and a more pressing need in the starting rotation, don’t look for the D-backs to be in the bidding for Johnson.
