Padres Avoid Arbitration With Kevin Correia

The Padres have signed Kevin Correia to a one-year deal worth "$3.6MM or so", according to Corey Brock of MLB.com (via Twitter) who confirmed the initial tweet from Marty Caswell of XX 1090 Radio.  Brock tells MLBTR that the deal may be a "tad higher" than the $3.6MM figure.

This past season, the 29-year-old recorded a 3.91 ERA, 6.5 K/9, and 2.9 BB/9 in 198 innings for the Padres.  After spending six big league seasons with the Giants, San Diego inked the hurler to a one-year pact last winter with a base of $.75MM.
