SAN DIEGO (AP) - Freddy Garcia and the San Diego Padres have agreed to a minor league contract that includes an invitation to spring training.
The Padres also signed right-hander Tim Stauffer and lefty Arturo Lopez to minor league deals, inviting both pitchers to spring training. The team announced the moves Tuesday.
Garcia was 7-6 with a 5.20 ERA in 30 games, 17 starts, for the New York Yankees last year. The 36-year-old right-hander, an All-Star in 2001 and 2002, is 152-101 with a 4.15 ERA in 14 major league seasons.
Stauffer, 30, was San Diego's opening-day starter last year before missing the rest of the season with an elbow injury. He had surgery to repair tendon damage Aug. 31 and was waived by the Padres before clearing outright waivers in October.
The 29-year-old Lopez pitched in the Mexican League last season. He appeared in four big league games for San Diego in 2009.
The Padres also completed a $3.2 million, one-year contract with reliever Luke Gregerson, avoiding salary arbitration. Gregerson's agent, Tom O'Connell, announced the deal Monday on his Twitter account.
