Luke Gregerson's agent says the pitcher has agreed to a $3.2 million, one-year contract with the San Diego Padres.
Tom O'Connell announced the deal Monday on his Twitter account.
Gregerson was 2-0 with a 2.39 ERA in 77 relief appearances last season, striking out 72 in 71 1-3 innings. He made $1.55 million.
The 28-year-old right-hander had asked for $3.75 million in arbitration and had been offered $2,875,000.
Two Padres remain in arbitration: third baseman Chase Headley and left-hander Clayton Richard. Hearings before three-person panels are scheduled for next month in Phoenix.

Chase Headley Bobblehead
We are kicking off 2013 with a great contest. You can win a Chase Headley bobblehead if you are able to guess the amount he will make in 2013.
Headley is currently going through the arbitration process with the Padres and the two will either agree on an amount, or a judge will. Until then, let’s have a little fun.
Chase Headley is asking for $10.3M...
The San Diego Padres are bringing in reinforcements. After the 2012 season saw the team lose virtually their entire starting rotation and much of their bullpen to injuries, the Padres have signed a veteran work horse. San Diego and Freddy Garcia have a agreed to a minor league contract with an invite to Major League camp.
According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, the deal allows...
This is the third in a ten-part series (feeling more like Ken Burns now) where I will identify the top three players at each position in the Padres’ minor league system. Up next: Second Base.
Ahhhh. Finally some intrigue! San Diego has some interesting prospects at the second base position. Let’s start with the obvious: Jedd Gyorko.
Gyorko has a legitimate shot at...
The Padres have announced they agreed to minor league contracts with Tim Stauffer, Freddy Garcia, and LHP Arturo Lopez.
Tim Stauffer is working his way back from elbow surgery and is reportedly only two weeks behind schedule. Stauffer was selected by the Padres, fourth overall in the 2003 draft. Following his breakout 2010 campaign, Stauffer set career highs in...

The Padres have signed right-hander Freddy Garcia to a minor league contract according to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN (via twitter).
The 36 year old pitched to a 5.20 ERA in 107 1/3 innings for the Yankees last year. His extended stats show a 7.5 K/9 and 2.9 BB/9 for 2012. He was hampered by an uncharacteristically high homerun rate at 15.8% HR/FB.
Garcia owns a career line of 4.15 ERA...
It would be really nice if top tier celebrities and in this case baseball players could own up to what they have done and get on with their lives. Today an article has come out from Miami about Dr. Anthony Bosch, who has been supplying players with PEDs. Pretty much anyone who has been busted for PED use in the past couple years has been a client of this guy. This includes Melky...
Another Monday is upon us, and with it a fresh week of Padres related news and stories. Right now I don’t expect a whole lot of breaking news, but we could see a minor league signing or two as we get closer to spring training. Speaking of spring training, we are almost there! Pitchers and catchers report in about two weeks and then baseball can officially being to pick up. It is...
