Padres Sign Matt Stairs

TUESDAY, 4:06pm: MLB.com's Corey Brock tweets that the deal is now official.

SATURDAY, 4:05pm: The Padres will sign Matt Stairs, according to a tweet from ESPN's Jerry Crasnick.  The soon-to-be 42-year-old has a minor league deal with a major league invite, though Crasnick says (via Twitter) that it appears he has a very good chance of making the roster.

Stairs is hoping to be San Diego's left-handed bat off of the bench.  Earlier in the week, Crasnick reported that Stairs dropped a whopping 31 pounds in order to get himself into shape for Spring Training.

Stairs hit .194/.357/.379 with 5 HRs in 129 plate appearances for the Phillies last season.
