Wed 24th, December 2008

San Diego, CA (Sports Network) – The San Diego Padres agreed to terms on a one-year contract with infielder Luis Rodriguez, one of a bevy of moves by the club on Wednesday.

Rodriguez, 28, hit .287 with 11 doubles and 12 RBI in 64 games last season with the Padres, his first with the organization. For his career, the switch-hitting infielder has a .257 batting average with six home runs and 50 RBI in 270 games with Minnesota (2005-07) and San Diego (2008).

The Padres also agreed to terms with pitchers Kevin Correia, Chris Britton and Oneli Perez, and catcher Eliezer Alfonzo on minor league contracts.

Correia, 28, posted a 3-8 mark with a 6.05 earned run average in 25 games (19 starts) with the Giants last year, while the 26-year-old Britton had a 5.09 ERA and failed to record a decision in 15 relief appearance for the Yankees in 2008.
