MIAMI -

A person familiar with the deal says the Miami Marlins have undergone another payroll purge by trading shortstop Jose Reyes, left-hander Mark Buehrle and right-hander Josh Johnson to the Toronto Blue Jays as part of a blockbuster deal.

The person confirmed the trade to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the teams weren't officially commenting. The person said the trade sent several of the Blue Jays' top prospects to the Marlins.

The stunning agreement came less than a year after the Marlins added Reyes, Buehrle and closer Heath Bell in an uncharacteristic $191 million spending spree as they moved into a new ballpark. The binge raised high hopes, but the Marlins instead finished last in the NL East.
