Padres, RHP Adams agree to $1 million deal

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Mike Adams and the San Diego Padres have agreed to a $1 million, one-year contract that avoids salary arbitration.

The deal was completed shortly after Tuesday's exchange of figures. The reliever had asked for $1.2 million, and the Padres countered at $875,000.

The 31-year-old Adams had no record and a 0.73 ERA in 37 appearances for San Diego last year, when he made $414,800. He missed much of the season while recovering from right shoulder surgery, but allowed only three earned runs in 37 innings — including just one earned run in his last 34 games.

The only Padres player still in arbitration is outfielder Scott Hairston, reacquired Saturday from Oakland in a trade. He requested $2.9 million and the team offered $2.1 million.
