Padres Agree To Terms With Jace Peterson

Peterson, a left-handed-hitting infielder out of McNeese State, was the 58th overall pick and the Padres' fifth selection.  The Padres gained the pick when Type B free agent Kevin Correia turned down their arbitration offer and signed with the Pirates.  On Friday, the Padres signed their first first-round pick, Corey Spangenberg, who was selected at No. 10 overall.

San Diego has now agreed to terms with 19 of its 53 picks, with first-rounder Joe Ross (25th overall) and supplementary picks Michael Kelly and Brett Austin (48th and 54th) among the notables who remain unsigned.
