San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - The San Diego Padres came to terms on one- year contracts with 17 players on Tuesday, most notably third baseman Sean Burroughs and righthanded pitcher Jake Peavy.

In 2003, Burroughs batted .286 with seven homers and 58 RBI in 146 games, moving into the leadoff spot in the order late in the season. The 23-year-old is the son of former American League MVP Jeff Burroughs, and will be entering his third major league season.

The 22-year-old Peavy has an 18-18 record with a 4.25 ERA in 49 career starts. He led the Padres with 12 victories in 2003, posting a 4.11 earned run average.

San Diego now has every player on its 40-man roster signed through the 2004 season.

"We signed everybody. We had no renewals," general manager Kevin Towers said.

The Padres also signed pitchers Ben Howard, Scott Linebrink, Justin Germano, Chris Oxspring, Brian Sweeney, Jason Szuminski, Dennis Tankersley and Rusty Tucker.

Infielders Khalil Greene, Ramon Vazquez and Bernie Castro, outfielders Freddy Guzman and Henri Stanley, and catchers Humberto Quintero and Tom Wilson also signed Tuesday.
