AP source: Padres, RHP Seth Lugo agree on $15M, 2-year deal

Free-agent reliever Seth Lugo and the San Diego Padres have agreed on a $15 million, two-year contract, according to a person with knowledge of the deal. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the agreement was pending a physical and no announcement had been made. The second year of the deal is a player option and there are incentives in the contract. Lugo went 3-2 with a 3.60 ERA and three saves over 62 outings and 65 innings with the Mets this year. A converted starter, the versatile right-hander spent his first seven seasons with New York.
