Padres agreed to terms with first baseman-outfielder Brian Buchanan on a one-year, $650,000 contract.

Padres non-tendered first baseman Todd Sears.
The Padres would like to re-sign Sears to a minor league deal, but he might want to head elsewhere. If he returns to San Diego, he might not have a bench spot.
Miguel Ojeda - C - San Diego Padres Dec 20
