Padres sign Embree, invite him to spring training
He would get an $850,000, one-year contract if he makes the big league roster.
This will be Embree's second tour with the Padres. In 2002, he went 3-4 with a 1.26 ERA and 38 strikeouts in 36 appearances prior to being traded to Boston.
The 35-year-old Embree went 2-5 with one save and a 7.62 ERA in a combined 67 games with the Red Sox and New York Yankees in 2005.
