As first reported by FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, the Padres have signed veteran shortstop Clint Barmes to a one-year contract. CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman adds that the deal comes with an option for 2016.

Barmes hit just .224/.271/.314 over the past three seasons for Pittsburgh, but he’s still a good defender at age 35 and will give the Friars an experienced backup behind the 25-year-old Alexi Amarista.

Everth Cabrera was non-tendered on Tuesday.
