Padres: Free-agent start­ing pitcher Gar­rett Richards agreed to a two-year con­tract. Terms of the deal are not known.

Richards has a 3.15 ERA with 1.17 walks and hits per in­nings pitched over his past 86 starts, dat­ing to the be­gin­ning of the 2014 sea­son.

Rock­ies: Left-handed re­liever Chris Rusin agreed to a one-year con­tract worth $1.7 mil­lion, a deal with a $400,000 raise that avoided salary ar­bi­tra­tion.
