Padres Do Not Offer Arb To Brian Giles

The Padres will not offer arbitration to Type B free agent outfielder Brian Giles, MLB.com's Corey Brock learned from GM Jed Hoyer.  Backup catcher Henry Blanco, who is neither A nor B, also will not get an offer.  Brock says the Padres would like to re-sign Blanco, but Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports believes he's close to a deal with the Mets.

Giles was an easy decision after he fell off a cliff in 2009, hitting just .191/.277/.271 in 253 plate appearances while earning $9MM.  Giles dealt with a knee injury during the season.
