EPSN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Padres have signed Josh Johnson to a one-year, $8 million contract.

Tim Dierkes of MLBTradeRumors.com says Johnson can earn an additional $1.25 million if he makes 26 starts. If he makes fewer than seven starts, the Padres would get a $4 million option for 2015. Following a disappointing 2013 campaign, Johnson was looking for a one-year deal as a means to rebuild his value, and he certainly found a cushy landing spot. If he can manage to stay healthy, the big right-hander makes for a nice fantasy sleeper while pitching his home games at spacious Petco Park.

Ben Revere went 4-for-5 with an RBI, three runs scored and three stolen bases in Monday's victory over the Mets.

It was a good time for Revere to have a big night with Trea Turner making his professional debut in center field at Triple-A Syracuse on Monday. The speedster had three of the Nationals' six steals on the night, as teams are continuing to run wild on Noah Syndergaard. Revere was officially put on notice with the Turner news, so he'll need to keep it going.

Noah Syndergaard denied a report that he has a bone spur in his pitching elbow.

Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reported Monday night that Syndergaard has a bone spur in his elbow, but the ace right-hander told reporters after the game that he doesn't have a bone spur, bone chip, or any other structural damage. He made an early exit from a start against the Royals last week, but an MRI came back clean and he was given anti-inflammatory medication. He struggled in his return Monday against the Nationals, giving up a season-high five runs over just three innings. Bone spur or not, his elbow is a lingering concern.

Lonnie Chisenhall singled and lifted a three-run homer in Monday's win over the Braves.

Chisenhall's longball off of Tyrell Jenkins in the fourth inning put the Indians ahead for good. It was his second straight game with a homer, and Chisenhall now has 11 hits over his last six games. His batting line for the season is suddenly up to .295/.355/.470.

Aledmys Diaz exited Monday's game against the Royals in the ninth inning after fouling a ball off his face.

Diaz hit a foul ball which bounced off home plate and hit him in the forehead area. He walked off the field with a towel on his face. The Cardinals should pass along an update after the game.

Kris Bryant had a night for the ages in Monday's win over the Reds, going 5-for-5 with three homers and two doubles while driving in six runs.

Bryant went deep twice off of Reds starter Dan Straily and once off of reliever Ross Ohlendorf, with two of the longballs reaching the upper deck at Great American Ball Park. He scored four times and totaled 16 bases on the night, which was three shy of Shawn Green's major league record of 19. Dating back to 1913, no player had ever hit three homers and doubled twice in the same game. Bryant's 21 dingers on the season pull him into a tie with Nolan Arenado and Adam Duvall for the National League lead.

Joey Votto hit a pair of homers, drove in three and scored three runs in Monday's loss to the Cubs.

The Reds probably weren't counting on scoring eight runs on a night when Jake Arrieta started, but it still wasn't enough as they lost a slugfest. Votto got off to a slow start this season but has been red-hot over the last month, batting .314 with seven home runs and 15 RBI across his last 28 games.

Jonathan Papelbon (intercostal) tossed a perfect inning Monday in his first minor league rehab appearance with High-A Potomac.

Papelbon struck out one batter and needed 10 pitches to get through the frame. He'll probably need at least one more appearance before rejoining the Nationals. Papelbon has been sidelined since June 12 with a right intercostal strain.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said that Josh Reddick (thumb) is track to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

Reddick, out since May 19 with fractured left thumb, is 3-for-20 (.150) with a homer over five rehab games with Triple-A Nashville. Assuming all goes well Monday, he's expected to return to the A's for Tuesday's game against the Giants. Reddick was batting .322/.394/.466 with five homers and 18 RBI in 44 games prior to the injury. He could become trade bait for Oakland next month if the two sides don't make progress on a contract extension. Joe Stiglich of CSNBayArea.com hears that Reddick is on a preliminary list of players under consideration by the Giants.

Angels general manager Billy Eppler said Monday that Garrett Richards has shown "progressive healing" in the ulnar collateral ligament in his throwing elbow.

Richards received a stem-cell injection six weeks ago in his efforts to avoid Tommy John surgery. Monday's exam was good news, but he's scheduled to be evaluated again in six weeks before the next step is determined. If Richards ends up needing Tommy John surgery, he would miss the entire 2017 season.

Lance McCullers has been scratched from Tuesday's start against the Angels due to a blister.

McCullers is dealing with a start of a small blister on his finger and the Astros don't want to take any chances. Scott Feldman will make the start in his place. McCullers could return to action as soon as this weekend against the White Sox.
