The San Diego Padres and free agent reliever, Wandy Peralta, are in agreement on a four-year deal worth $16.5 million, per Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

Wandy Peralta has spent the last three seasons of his eight year career with the New York Yankees. He has spent time with Cincinnati, San Francisco, and New York (AL).

In his last three seasons with New York, Peralta has pitched to a 2.82 ERA in 153.0 innings. Peralta was a top reliever for manager Aaron Boone and was used in high leverage situations.

The Padres have been on the prowl for pitching this offseason and Peralta is no different. Peralta, 32, will be in San Diego through his age 36 season. Although signs of regression in his time in New York prompted them to move on, his performance earned him this contract and will be a top option for the Padres.
