SAN DIEGO - The San Diego Padres have agreed to terms on a US$2,705,000, one-year contract with left-handed pitcher Clayton Richard.

General manager Josh Byrnes made the announcement Monday.

The 28-year-old Richard was 5-9 with a 3.88 earned-run average and 53 strikeouts over 18 starts in 2011 before undergoing season-ending surgery on his left shoulder on July 29.

Richard is 24-20 with a 3.84 ERA since joining the Padres from the Chicago White Sox in July 2009.

The Padres now have only one arbitration-eligible player remaining in right-handed pitcher Dustin Moseley.
