The AP's Bernie Wilson has a story about the contract the Padres agreed on with starting pitcher Jon Garland. The contract guarantees Garland $4.7 million in 2010, and includes an option for $6.75 million for 2011. It is a mutual option, with a two-tiered buyout structure. If Garland decliens the option, San Diego would buy him out for $300,000. If the Padres determined they would prefer to decline the option, they would be on the hook for $600,000 to buy Garland out.

Garland split last year between the Diamondbacks and the Dodgers. He went 11-13 with an ERA of 4.01 in 33 starts for the two teams. He'll anchor a Padre rotation expected to include Chris Young and Kevin Correia.
