PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — Dustin Moseley has his eyes fixed on the fifth spot in the San Diego Padres' starting rotation.

Moseley, who signed a one-year deal with the Padres worth $900,000 in December, said he's willing to pitch out of the bullpen if needed. But with his health intact, Moseley first wants a chance to start.

Moseley started the Padres' intrasquad game on Saturday and pitched a perfect inning, retiring all three hitters he faced on ground balls.

Moseley did a bit of everything for the New York Yankees last season. After reaching the big leagues in July, Moseley made 16 appearances, including nine starts. He finished 4-4 with a 4.96 ERA.
