Moseley was arbitration-eligible for the second time this offseason after earning $900,000 in 2011. The 30-year-old requested $2.55 million and was offered $1.5 million from the Padres when arbitration figures were exchanged earlier this month, so the two sides settled at a little under the midpoint.
Moseley went just 3-10 last season, despite a 3.30 ERA and 64/36 K/BB ratio over 120 innings. As if he wasn’t unlucky enough already, he also required season-ending surgery on his non-throwing shoulder last August. However, he should be good to go for spring training and projects to open 2012 in the Padres’ starting rotation.
Now that a deal with Moseley is finalized, the Padres have all of their arbitration-eligible players under contract.
