ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Reliever Kyle Farnsworth and second baseman-outfielder Kelly Johnson have finalized one-year contracts with the Tampa Bay Rays.

The team announced Tuesday that Farnsworth agreed to a base salary of $1.25 million for this season. The 36-year-old right-hander missed much of last season with an elbow strain sustained during spring training and wound up going 1-6 with a 4.00 ERA in 34 appearances for the Rays.

The 30-year-old Johnson batted .225 with 16 homers and 55 RBI for the Toronto Blue Jays in 2012. He agreed to a $2.45 million, one-year deal that includes performance bonuses of $50,000 each for 550 and 600 plate appearances.

To clear room on the 40-man roster, infielders Reid Brignac and Elliot Johnson were designated for assignment.
