Padres to sign Josh Johnson
by Chris Cwik |

The Padres are set to sign pitcher Josh Johnson to a one-year deal, confirms Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Yahoo initially reported the two sides were on the verge of a deal.

Johnson will make a base salary under $2 million, but can earn as much as $8 million due to incentives. Given his recent injury issues, it's assumed those incentives will revolve around both his numbers and his ability to remain healthy. Johnson signed with San Diego last season, but was unable to pitch after undergoing Tommy John surgery. The team declined his option during the offseason, but showed interest in re-signing Johnson to a lesser deal.

Johnson posted a 6.20 ERA in 81 1/3 innings with Toronto in 2013.

Josh Johnson on the verge of signing with Padres

The Padres are on the verge of a one-year deal with pitcher Josh Johnson, confirms Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. The deal was first reported by Yahoo!

The two sides are still figuring out the details of the contract, but it's assumed it will include incentives based on games started. Johnson signed with the club last offseason, but did not pitch after undergoing Tommy John surgery in April. The Padres declined an option on Johnson following the season, but expressed a desire to bring him back at a cheaper price.

Issue with Matt Kemp's physical not expected to derail trade
by Michael Hurcomb |

While several sources said there is an issue with Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp's physical, which is holding up a trade with the Padres, it isn't believed the issue will derail the deal, according to Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. 

There is no evidence the Padres are trying to rework the trade. For now, it is believed the Padres people are studying the findings from Kemp's physical, with the likelihood that they'll go to insurers to see whether the issue or issues discovered can be reasonably insured.

USA Today reported Thursday Kemp's physical revealed severe arthritis in both hips.

Report: Padres-Dodgers trade delayed following Kemp's physical
by Michael Hurcomb |

The Padres are mulling whether or not to finalize the trade for Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp after his physical revealed severe arthritis in both hips, a person familiar with the diagnosis told USA Today. The source spoke to USA Today on the condition of anonymity.

The Padres and Dodgers agreed to a trade last week that would send Kemp, catcher Tim Federowicz and $32 million to San Diego for catcher Yasmani Grandal and pitching prospects Joe Wieland and Zach Eflin.

However, after Kemp's physical Tuesday, Padres' physicians are now discussing whether the arthritis would impact his career.

If the Padres choose to void the trade, then it would impact the Dodgers' trade with the Phillies for shortstop Jimmy Rollins since the deal included Eflin.

While the USA Today report has surfaced, Kemp's agent -- Junior Spivey -- told FOX Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal, "Everything is OK. We're just waiting on the final details. Should be good to go." Although, Spivey added he has not heard from the Padres since Kemp took his physical Tuesday.

Report: Padres' Seth Smith popping up in trade talks
by Chris Cwik |

Padres outfielder Seth Smith has come up in trade talks recently, according to ESPN.

If the Matt Kemp and Wil Myers trades go through, the team would have a surplus in the outfield. On top of those two players, San Diego would also have Carlos Quentin, Will Venable, Cameron Maybin and Smith. The 32-year-old Smith hit .266/.367/.440 over 443 at-bats last year.
