An inconsistent, injury-plagued 2013 wasn’t enough to scare off the San Diego Padres from free-agent starter Josh Johnson, as the team is betting on a bounce-back year for the former Cy Young candidate.
According to ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick, the two sides have agreed upon a one-year deal worth a guaranteed $8 million.
“The deal includes an additional $1.25 million in performance bonuses if Johnson makes 26 starts, the source said. Johnson was in San Diego for a physical exam Tuesday and the contract is expected to be announced by the club Wednesday,” Crasnick reports.
Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Passan adds a unique detail about the contract:
Interesting twist to Josh Johnson's $8M deal with Padres. If he makes fewer than seven starts, San Diego gets a $4M club option for 2015.
