Padres agree to deals with Yates, Hedges, Erlin

SAN DIEGO (AP) The Padres agreed to one-year contracts with their three remaining arbitration-eligible players: closer Kirby Yates, catcher Austin Hedges and left-hander Robbie Erlin.

Yates agreed Friday to a deal for $3,062,500, Hedges for $2.06 million and Erlin for $1.45 million.

Yates took over as closer after All-Star Brad Hand was traded to Cleveland. Yates finished with 12 saves and a 2.14 ERA while going 3-5.

Erlin was 4-7 with a 4.21 ERA in 39 appearances, including 12 starts. Hedges hit .231 with 14 homers and 37 RBIs.

San Diego outfielder Travis Jankowski agreed Thursday to a $1,165,000 salary for this year.
