San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - The San Diego Padres have signed veteran reliever Antonio Osuna to a non-guaranteed one-year contract.
The 30-year-old righthander spent the 2003 season with the New York Yankees and compiled a record of 2-5 with a 3.73 earned run average in 48 games.
In nine major league seasons, Osuna has a career record of 34-28 with 21 saves and a 3.58 ERA in 376 games. He broke in with Los Angeles in 1995 and spent six years with the Dodgers, then played two seasons with the Chicago White Sox before joining the Yankees.
The Padres opened a roster spot by designating pitcher Matt Bruback for assignment.
The 25-year-old righthander was claimed off waivers from Pittsburgh last August 19 and won both of his starts with San Diego's Triple-A affiliate in Portland.

like I said. underrated.
When your 'mopup guys' have a k/9 in excess of 9.00 and a career 1.29 ratio. that is underratted. I won't even get into the experince of the 7th, 8th and 9th inning guys.
Combined, they are well in excess of 600 career saves
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
