Diamondbacks and Jon Garland Agree to Terms

The Diamondbacks and free agent right-hander Jon Garland have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with an option for 2010, according to major league sources, worth between $6-8 million.

It appears the contract is similar to one of the proposals the sides discussed a few weeks ago, in which the deal would include an option that could be exercised by either the player or team. The value of the buyout would vary depending on which side declines the option.

This will probably lead to other free agent signings of starters on the free agent market.
