Padres Reach Agreement With Dustin Moseley

The Padres reached an agreement with swingman Dustin Moseley, the team announced today.  On Wednesday, ESPN's Jerry Crasnick tweeted that the deal guarantees $900K.

Moseley, 29 later this month, posted a 4.96 ERA, 4.5 K/9, 3.7 BB/9, 1.8 HR/9, and 49.1% groundball rate this year before being non-tendered by the Yankees.  He also tossed 72 2/3 innings across 12 starts in Triple-A.  The Padres' rotation lost Jon Garland and Kevin Correia this offseason, but they've added Aaron Harang and could use Moseley as a starter as well.  Since Moseley has fewer than four years of big league service time, the Padres have the opportunity to control him through 2013.
