Cliff Floyd Signs with San Diego Padres

Cliff Floyd, the oft-injured, but effective veteran presence last year on the Tampa Bay Rays, reportedly has reached an agreement with the San Diego Padres. The Padres were in need of a left handed bat, but it is a little surprising Floyd, a decent DH candidate, went to a national league team. The club, who was also interested in Luis Gonzales, apparently decided Floyd had enough left in the tank to still play a little outfield. Floyd hit .268 with 11 HR in 80 games last year with the Rays.
