Padres sign Shawn Hill

The Padres need all the arms they can get, not only to fill out their bullpen but also to round out the last two spots in their starting rotation. That is, if right-hander Kevin Correia isn't already slated for the #4 spot.

According to Chico Harlan of the Washington Post, the Padres have added one more arm to their roster, signing right-hander Shawn Hill to a minor league deal.

Hill was released last Wednesday by the Washington Nationals and, if healthy, he could take that #5 spot. The other good news is he'll remain under San Diego's control until 2012 as an arbitration-eligible player.
