Padres, Flores reach minor league contract

Colorado Rockies v Kansas City Royals

Another minor deal to report.

According to CAA Baseball’s official Twitter feed, the Padres have signed left-handed reliever Randy Flores to a minor league contract and have issued him an invitation to spring training.

CAA, by the way, stands for Creative Artists Agency.  It’s a massive firm that represents show business people and professional athletes.  Flores is one of their clients.

The 35-year-old posted a nice-looking 2.96 ERA in 27.1 innings for the Rockies over the first several months of the 2010 season, but left-handed batters registered a frightening .295/.380/.508 overall batting line against him and he completely fell apart once the Twins claimed him off waivers in late August.

He’ll need to put on a show this spring in order to secure a bullpen gig with San Diego.
