Padres Agree To Terms With Jace Peterson

The Padres have agreed to terms with Jace Peterson, whom they selected in the supplemetary round of Monday's Draft, reports Corey Brock of MLB.com (via Twitter). Peterson will receive a bonus of $624,600, which matches MLB's recommended figure for his slot, according to Jim Callis of Baseball America.

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.
