NEW YORK (AP) - A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that catcher Yorvit Torrealba and the San Diego Padres have reached an agreement on a one-year contract worth $1.25 million.

The person spoke Friday on condition of anonymity because the agreement had not been finalized. The deal is subject to the catcher passing a physical.

Torrealba would get a $750,000 salary this year, and the deal would include a $3.5 million mutual option for 2011 with a $500,000 buyout.

He figures to be a backup to Nick Hundley, who started 71 games last year and hit .238 with eight homers and 30 RBIs.
