Morosi: Josh Johnson OKs 1-year deal with Padres.
The news is breaking now. It seems that Josh Johnson has gotten $8 million dollars from the Padres to pitch in 2014, according to Jerry Crasnick.

He pitched a full 2012 for the Miami Marlins and had a solid 3.84 ERA in 31 starts (8-14 record)...
The Diamondbacks and Marlins are meeting up after weekend series that did not follow season-long trends. The D-backs suffered their first sweep of the season in San Diego -- the one-game stop in Texas does not count -- while the Marlins took two out of three at home from the Cardinals. Miami (21-47) still has the worst record in the league, and St. Louis (44-25) still has the best...
