Garland fills Johnson's spot for Arizona

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Arizona's Jon Garland has pitched at least 190 innings in each of the past seven seasons. From 2002-2007, Garland pitched for the Chicago White Sox.

He spent last year with the Los Angeles Angels.

Garland has won between 10 and 18 games per season.

Garland signed a one-year, $6.25 million deal with the Diamondbacks in January with a mutual option for the 2010 season.

In replacing Randy Johnson, Garland joins a starting rotation anchored by Brandon Webb, Dan Haren and Doug Davis.

General Manager Josh Byrnes says this year's Diamondbacks starting rotation "has to be in the conversation" about the National League's best starting rotations.
