Fisher signed a minor league deal with the Padres in late November, Baseball America reports. Fisher spent 2016 with Triple-A Round Rock in the Rangers' system, where he finished with a 4.40 ERA in 47 innings pitched over 42 games. He's spent the last three seasons in Triple-A, and hasn't been to the major leagues since 2011. At 33, he'll be looking to get one last crack at the big leagues in 2017.
The A's signed reliever Carlos Fisher to a minor league contract on Saturday. Fisher pitched with the Cincinnati organization last season.
