The Orioles are willing to listen to trade offers for closer Jim Johnson, according to ESPN’s Buster Olney.

Baltimore is facing a massive payroll crunch this offseason, and Johnson’s $10.8MM projected salary (per MLBTR’s Matt Swartz) would seem to be a definite roadblock in their pursuit of top free agents to whom they’ve been linked, such as Carlos Beltran.
