Padres Sign Chris Britton

We missed this one - apparently the Padres signed recently non-tendered reliever Chris Britton, according to Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune.  The big righty will compete for the seventh-inning role in 2009.  What better place for a soft-tossing righty reliever to land than PETCO.

Krasovic adds that the Padres and pitcher Kevin Correia have mutual interest.  Also, while the Padres may consider Brad Ausmus, they have an eye on San Francisco catcher Eliezer Alfonzo.  Alfonzo missed 50 games in 2008 after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.  UPDATE: The Padres signed Alfonzo to a minor league deal on Friday, actually.
