The Padres ownership questions don't appear to be impeding Friar GM Josh Byrnes from continuing to implement his vision for the franchise. After previously extending Cameron Maybin and Nick Hundley, the Padres have reportedly signed LHP CoryLuebke to a new contract as well. The contract is for four guaranteed years and includes club options on two more seasons.According to this tweet from Tom Krasovic of Inside The Padres, the contract provides for $12 million in guaranteed money. In a seperate tweet from MLB.com's Corey Brock, Luebke could earn a total of $27.75 million should both options be exercised by the club.The deal gives the Padres contractual control of Luebke through two pre-arbitration years, all three arbitration seasons and buys out a year of free agency should the club exercise both of their options.Luebke appeared in 46 games with the Friars last year and struck out nearly 10 batters per 9 innings pitched. He is expected to be the #2 starter in the rotation this year.
