Padres | Josh Johnson agrees to deal

Free-agent SP Josh Johnson (Blue Jays) reached an agreement with the San Diego Padres Tuesday, Nov. 19, on a one-year, guaranteed $8 million contract, according to a baseball source. The deal includes additional performance bonuses on games started. The team is expected to announce the deal Wednesday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson struggled mightily in an injury-plagued season in 2013, but working on a one-year deal in a pitcher's park should help him establish himself. He remains a solid back-end fantasy rotation option in most formats heading into 2014.
