Report: Padres sign Brandon Morrow to one-year deal

Tuesday December 16th, 2014

The San Diego Padres signed pitcher Brandon Morrow to a one-year deal, reports’s Corey Brock. 

According to the report, the deal is heavy on incentives. Morrow will receive $2.5 million in guarantees, plus he has a chance to take in $5 million in bonuses for starting and $1 million in bonuses for being a reliever.

Morrow missed the majority of last season with a torn tendon sheath in his right hand and has only pitched 87 2/3 innings in the past two seasons because of injuries. He became a free agent this offseason when the Toronto Blue Jays declined his $10 million option for 2015.

Morrow has a 42-43 record with a 4.28 ERA in eight seasons in the Blue Jays and Seattle Mariners, who selected him with the No. 5 pick in the 2006 MLB draft.
