MLB Team Report - San Diego Padres - INSIDE PITCH
Adding another piece to a revamped bullpen, the San Diego Padres reached a contract agreement with right-handed reliever Joaquin Benoit.
According to multiple media reports on Dec. 18, the free agent agreed to a two-year, $15.5 million contract. The deal would include a $7 million option (or a $1.5 million buyout) for 2016.
The contract was not finalized, as Benoit had yet to take a physical exam.
