By Jerry Crasnick
Freddy Garcia has agreed to a minor league deal with the San Diego Padres, according to a source.
Garcia has a chance to compete for a spot in a rotation that includes Edinson Volquez, Clayton Richard, Jason Marquis, Eric Stults and Tyson Ross.
The Pittsburgh Pirates had also expressed interest in Garcia, who went 7-6 with a 5.20 ERA in 17 starts with the Yankees last season.
