SAN DIEGO (AP) — Outfielder Brian O’Grady and the San Diego Padres agreed to a contract that pays $650,000 in the majors and $300,000 in the minors.

The 28-year-old was 2 for 5 with a double in two games last season with the AL champion Tampa Bay Rays in early August. He spent most of the season at their alternate training site.

O’Grady was selected by Cincinnati on the eighth round of the 2014 amateur draft from Rutgers and has a .213 batting average with two doubles and three RBIs in 30 games with the Reds in 2019 and the Rays last season.
