TORONTO - After watching his teammate struggle, then find himself over the last half of the 2012 season, Mark Buehrle thinks the Toronto Blue Jays might be positioned to catch the best of Josh Johnson in 2013.

"Josh is a stud," said Buehrle Thursday. "He was one of the top pitchers in the game before he got hurt. Last year he bounced back and made all his starts. Another offseason of being healthy and doing his exercises, I see no reason that he can't get back to being that top of the line starter."
