Earlier this week San Diego signed Aaron Harang to a one-year, $4 million deal and the Padres have added another potential starter in Dustin Moseley, who’ll get $900,000 in 2011.

Moseley has bounced around between the majors and Triple-A for the past five seasons, posting a 5.28 ERA in 233 total innings for the Angels and Yankees.

Moving from the AL to the NL and calling Petco Park home should help him significantly, but that’s true of all pitchers and Moseley’s track record just doesn’t suggest he’s capable of being more than a serviceable long reliever or fifth starter.

    Dustin Moseley? Sounds like a fullback for the Broncos….

    Uh-oh, with this signing my 20 empty seat area around me may become 10 seats.

    It’s fine to get some potential pitching depth, but as a Padres fan.. I am kind of nervous considering we have no 1b, 2b, SS and Chase Headley at 3rd. How are the Padres going to score?
