Corey Brock of reports that the Padres have signed right-hander Chad Gaudin to a minor league deal.  

He'll head to San Diego on Sunday for the official signing and a bullpen session.  The Padres are only required to pay $400K of the $2MM he's owed for 2009, with the Cubs picking up the rest of the tab.  Gaudin went 2-1 with a 10.26 ERA this spring, but he might just find a spot in the Friars' bullpen once he works through whatever was plaguing him during camp.

Gaudin, Padres Agree To Minor League Deal

I think the Gaudin signing is very good for the San Diego Padres.  Gaudin was effective last year when he was in Oakland and proved to be a worthy piece of the puzzle with the Cubs bullpen after getting traded.  Yes, he did have a rough spring, but I think their is still enough potential in him there to warrant a signing, especially the cut rate deal that the Padres were able to get him at.
