MIAMI | Pitcher Josh Johnson and the Florida Marlins have finalized their $39 million, four-year contract, announcing the deal at the construction site of the ballpark they expect to move into by 2012.

Florida reached the agreement last week, just days after the Marlins pledged to increase payroll spending in response to complaints from the players’ union.

The right-hander, who played in high school at Jenks, Okla., gets $3.75 million in 2010, $7.75 million in 2011 and $13.75 million in both 2012 and 2013.

He was an All-Star last season, going 15-5 with a 3.23 ERA in 209 innings.
