The Padres and right-hander Tim Stauffer have agreed to a one-year, $1.6 million contract to avoid arbitration, reports FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal. The deal is fully guaranteed.

Stauffer was limited to just one appearance with the Padres in 2012 before undergoing season-ending surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon, but he bounced back nicely this year as a full-time reliever. The 31-year-old posted a 3.75 ERA and 64/20 K/BB ratio over 69 2/3 innings.

As we noted last night, the Padres are loaded with rotation candidates, so Stauffer will likely remain in a middle relief role next season.
