Rhame signed a minor-league contract with the Padres on Monday, which includes an invitation to spring training, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
Rhame failed to make an appearance during the shortened 2020 campaign, but he'll have a chance to make an impact with the Padres after inking a minor-league deal.

Angels' Jacob Rhame: Outrighted to alternate site
Rhame (undisclosed) cleared waivers and was outrighted to the Angels' alternate training site Tuesday.
The 27-year-old was claimed off waivers from the Mets in early July, but he wasn't able to report to camp until last week and was unlikely to be ready for the start of the season. Rhame has been removed from the 40-man roster, but he could still be a factor for the Angels at some point this season.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Jacob Rhame: Doubtful for start of season
Rhame is not expected to be ready for the start of the season, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
It doesn't sound like Rhame -- who was claimed off waivers last week -- will have enough time to build up after reporting to camp Tuesday. He should get a shot in the majors once he's ready to go, as pitching coach Mickey Callaway indicated the hard-throwing righty could eventually develop into an impact reliever for the Angels....

Angels' Jacob Rhame: Claimed by Angels
Rhame was claimed off waivers by the Angels on Wednesday.
Rhame will head west after being waived by the Mets earlier in camp. The right-hander's 2019 season was cut short by a pair of injuries, but according to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, he had resumed throwing off a mound before switching teams. Across parts of three big-league seasons, Rhame owns a 6.23 ERA and 40:24 K:BB over 47.2 innings. Per Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic, Rhame will have to pass a COVID-19 test before he's cleared to join the Angels for workouts.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jacob Rhame: Could make spring debut
Rhame (elbow/foot) is listed among the Mets' available relievers for Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Rhame entered spring training slightly behind the Mets' other relievers while he neared the finish line of his recoveries from mid-August ulnar nerve transposition surgery and another procedure to address a broken left foot. The reliever had planned to pitch in the Dominican Winter League during the offseason, but the walking boot he required for his foot forced him to push back his throwing progression. Rhame looks like he'll be ready to make his spring debut Wednesday, which should put him on pace to be ready for Opening Day. If he breaks camp with the Mets, Rhame will likely be ticketed for a low-leverage role out of the bullpen.... See More ... See Less

Mets' Jacob Rhame: Undergoes surgery
Rhame underwent successful ulnar nerve transposition surgery Tuesday and will miss the rest of the season, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Rhame saw limited time in the majors this year, instead spending the majority of the season in the minors. The right-hander will finish the season with an ERA of 4.26 in just five appearances in the big leagues. It's an encouraging note that the surgery was successful, and it's possible that Rhame could play a role in the Mets' bullpen in 2020 even after a disappointing 2019 campaign.... See More ...

Rhame was sent down to the minors at the end of April amidst his appeal attempt -- he was slapped with a two-game suspension after intentionally hitting Rhys Hoskins with a pitch.
