Josh Johnson SP SD 13 Mins

Johnson (elbow) agreed to a one-year deal worth "closer to $1 million" Thursday, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Johnson's contract will reportedly also include incentives that could make the contract worth between $7 and $8 million. He is coming off Tommy John surgery in April, but could be available for the start of the 2014 season. It's no surprise that Johnson's deal is heavily incentivized given his past injuries, but the deal could allow him to make a good chunk of change if he remains healthy. The deal could also give the Padres another good arm in the starting rotation if Johnson can return to his 2012 form with the Marlins. In that season, he posted a 3.81 ERA and 1.28 WHIP with 165 strikeouts over 191.1 innings.

Johnson's contract option was declined by the Padres on Thursday, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Johnson spent most of the 2014 season on the disabled list after undergoing Tommy John surgery in late April. The Padres and Johnson are still reportedly negotiating another contract, but he may sign with other teams as well when the free agency period begins Nov. 4.

Johnson (elbow) played catch last Thursday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery in April, MLB.com reports.

Johnson, who was sidelined after throwing just 13 pitches in spring training, cleared the first major hurdle on his long road back from reconstructive elbow surgery last week, playing catch near his home in Las Vegas. He will continue to ramp up his throwing program on into November, and while there is plenty of uncertainty regarding Johnson's future, the prevailing thought is that the Padres would like to have him back next season. However, that does not necessarily mean the team will pick up his $4 million club option for 2015.

Padres transferred RHP Josh Johnson from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move was made in order to clear room on the 40-man roster. Johnson had successful Tommy John surgery on Thursday.

Josh Johnson is scheduled to undergo Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery on Thursday.

It's the second Tommy John surgery of Johnson's career, and he can now be ruled out through at least the first month of the 2015 season. He earned National League Cy Young Award votes in 2010 after posting a 2.30 ERA and 186 strikeouts in 183 2/3 innings for the Marlins, but chronic arm injuries have since derailed the talented right-hander. The Padres have a $4 million option on him for next year.

Josh Johnson (elbow) will visit Dr. James Andrews on Tuesday.

A decision will be made on Wednesday or Thursday regarding Johnson's future status. Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan reported last week that the right-hander could need Tommy John surgery. If that's the route he winds up taking, Johnson likely will never throw a pitch for the Padres. The club has a $4 million option on Johnson for 2015 if he starts fewer than seven games this season.

Josh Johnson (forearm) will see Dr. James Andrews next week.

This confirms a report from Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, who also added that the Padres are worried that Johnson might require season-ending Tommy John surgery. Padres manager Bud Black said that Andrews "will look at everything," so he didn't exactly rule out the possibility.

Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan reports that the Padres are worried that Josh Johnson might need Tommy John surgery.

Johnson's elbow hasn't been getting any better and will be sent to the infamous Dr. James Andrews next week for a second opinion. It would be Johnson's second Tommy John surgery and the second operation on his elbow in the last six months, as he had bone spurs removed over the offseason. The Padres have a $4 million option on Johnson for 2015 if he starts fewer than seven games.

Josh Johnson will have his right elbow examined by Dr. James Andrews next week.

Well, that's never a good sign. Johnson began the season on the DL with a strained flexor muscle, and he's yet to show any notable improvement. Padres general manager Josh Byrnes admitted Tuesday that he's "not sure" whether the right-hander will pitch this season. More will obviously be known after his exam next week.

Josh Johnson (forearm) will be re-evaluated this week.

The Padres are growing concerned that the oft-injured hurler isn't improving quickly enough. He was given an initial timeframe of five weeks, but it's beginning to look like it could extend beyond that mark.
