A small signing this evening, as the Padres inked 33 year-old southpaw Glendon Rusch to a minor-league deal. He missed the entire ’07 season due to a blood clot.
Add this to the recent Shawn Estes signing, and I wonder whether the Padres are content with their depth for the fifth starter spot. They’ve also got Clay Hensley and Justin Germano on the roster to compete for that job. My guess is that this means the Padres won’t pursue Mark Prior aggressively.
