Josh Johnson agrees to terms with Padres

Knowing the Blue Jays luck, Johnson is a good bet to win the 2014 Cy Young.

The Padres and free-agent right-hander Josh Johnson have agreed to a one-year deal worth a guaranteed $8 million, CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman has confirmed. The news was first reported by ESPN.com’s Jerry Crasnick, whose source also tells him that Johnson’s contract will include incentive clauses based on games started. The deal is expected to be announced on Wednesday.

Johnson, 29, is coming off a 2013 season in which he struggled badly with the Blue Jays: 6.20 ERA, 1.66 WHIP in 81 1/3 innings. Over the first eight seasons of his career, however, he pitched to a 3.15 ERA in 154 games, 144 of which were starts. He has had injury concerns throughout his career and in 2013, which is largely why he was reduced to accepting a one-year deal on the market.
