The San Diego Padres today agreed to terms with right-handed pitcher Antonio Osuna on a non-guaranteed one-year Major League contract and have designated right-handed pitcher Matt Bruback for assignment.

Antonio Osuna, 30, was a member of the New York Yankees during the 2003 season. He compiled a 2-5 record with a 3.73 ERA (21 ER/50.2 IP) in 48 games, all in relief. His last National League campaign came with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2000. In six seasons in the National League, Osuna is 24-21 with a 3.28 ERA (119 ER/327.0 IP).

Over parts of nine seasons with the Dodgers (1995-2000), Chicago White Sox (2001-02) and Yankees (2003), Osuna has a career record of 34-28 with 21 saves and a 3.58 ERA (179 ER/449.2 IP) in 376 games.

Matt Bruback, 25, was claimed off waivers from the Pittsburgh Pirates on August 19, 2003 and was optioned to Triple-A Portland. He made two starts, going 2-0 with a 2.61 ERA (3 ER/10.1 IP) for the Beavers.

Originally a 47th round selection by the Chicago Cubs in the 1997 First Year Player Draft, Bruback has a record of 47-47 with a 4.20 ERA (373 ER/799.0 IP) in six minor league seasons with the Padres, Cubs and Pirates organizations.
