SAN DIEGO (AP) — Outfielder Scott Hairston and the San Diego Padres have agreed to a $2.45 million, one-year contract to avoid arbitration.

Hairston had asked for $2.9 million and the team offered $2.1 million. He made $1.25 million last year.

Hairston spent the majority of the last three seasons with the Padres before being traded to Oakland on July 5. He was reacquired last month in a deal that sent third baseman Kevin Kouzmanoff to the Athletics. Three days after that deal, the Padres signed his older brother, Jerry, to a free-agent deal.

The Padres have agreed to terms with all of their arbitration-eligible players.
