The Miami Marlins and Toronto Blue Jays struck the first blockbuster trade of the MLB offseason Tuesday, with the Marlins sending SS Jose Reyes and starting pitchers Josh Johnson and Mark Buerhle to the Blue Jays for a number of players, as reported by Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal:


Reyes batted .287 with 11 home runs, 57 rbi’s and 40 stolen bases in his first season with the Marlins after signing a six-year, $106 million deal with Miami last December. Mark Beurhle was 13-13 with a 3.74 ERA in 31 starts last season, also his first with the Marlins. Johnson was 8-14 with a 3.81 ERA last season.

The move is clearly a salary bump for the Marlins, who are rebuilding their roster after firing Ozzie Guillen and hiring former MLB catcher Mike Redmond earlier this month.
