SAN DIEGO (AP)Right-hander Craig Stammen is guaranteed $4.5 million as part of his two-year contract with the San Diego Padres and can earn an additional $1 million in performance bonuses annually based on pitching appearances.

San Diego announced his deal Saturday, when the Padres also said they agreed to a two-year contract with Japanese right-hander Kazuhisa Makita.

In addition, the Padres avoided arbitration with pitcher Carter Capps by agreeing to a non-guaranteed one-year deal worth $1,062,500.

Stammen has a salary of $2.25 million in each of the next two seasons and can earn $100,000 for 20 pitching appearances and each additional five through 50. He can make $150,000 apiece for 55 and 60.

The 33-year-old was 2-3 with a 3.14 ERA with 74 strikeouts and 28 walks in a career-high 60 appearances for the Padres last season. In 289 career appearances with Washington and San Diego, Stammen is 28-27 with a 3.80 ERA.
