SAN DIEGO (AP) — The San Diego Padres have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with outfielder Chris Denorfia worth $1,165,000, and also tendered contracts to 35 other players.
Already under contract are newly acquired closer Huston Street, infielders Jason Bartlett and Orlando Hudson, and outfielder Mark Kotsay.
The Padres non-tendered outfielder Jeremy Hermida.
Denorfia hit .277 with five home runs and 19 RBIs in 2011, when the Padres finished last in the NL West.
Hermida was designated for assignment on Wednesday. He was acquired off waivers from the Cincinnati Reds on August 31. He hit .225 with one homer and six RBIs in 20 games with the Padres.
