“The Padres and David Wells have agreed in principle on a one-year deal, pending a physical exam, club general manager Kevin Towers said on Friday.
The contract is for $3 million guaranteed with incentives that can add another $4 million. He’ll earn $1 million based on staying healthy, and he’ll make about $176,500 per start from starts 11-27.
“I think this gives us a rotation that stacks up with any in our division and our league,” Towers said. “When I saw Boomer on Thursday, he looked like he was in good shape — and more than that, I think he really wants to pitch and contribute.”
