Josh Johnson
The Marlins have announced via their official Twitter feed that ace right-hander Josh Johnson will be shut down for the season.

It's not a surprising move, as Johnson hasn't pitched since September and was diagnosed with shoulder inflammation and a mild back strain. The Marlins are on the hook (get it? Marlins on the hook?) for $35.25 million for Johnson for the next three years, so they're right to protect their investment.

Johnson was arguably baseball's best pitcher in the first half of the season, going 9-3 with a 1.70 ERA. He still leads the NL with a 2.30 ERA, and will finish with a 2.30 ERA, 9.1 strikeouts per nine innings and 2.4 walks per nine.
