Padres Sign Tadahito Iguchi

UPDATE, 12-12-07 at 9:15am: Iguchi gets "nearly $4 million," according to Krasovic.  It's surprising he couldn't do better elsewhere.

FROM 12-11-07 at 10:25pm:

Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Padres have signed second baseman Tadahito Iguchi to a one-year deal.  This will give Matt Antonelli time to get a little more seasoning.  The second base prospect will turn 23 in April; he has 49 games above A ball under his belt.  The free agent market for second basemen is now pretty bleak, with David Eckstein perhaps the best choice.

Now that the Padres' top offseason target Kosuke Fukudome is a Cub, the Padres will set their sights on other outfielders.  Mike Cameron and Geoff Jenkins remain the top options, according to Krasovic.
