SAN DIEGO (AP) -The Padres agreed to terms Tuesday with four minor league free agents, including infielder Edgar Gonzalez, the older brother of San Diego first baseman Adrian Gonzalez.
Gonzalez played in 126 games for Triple-A Memphis last season, primarily at second base. He hit .308 with eight home runs and 53 RBIs. He has a .297 career average in parts of eight minor league seasons.
The other free agents to sign were outfielder Chip Ambres, right-hander Adam Bass and infielder Marshall McDougall.
Ambres, who played for Triple-A New Orleans in 2007, was up with the New York Mets for three games this season and played in 53 games with the Kansas City Royals in 2005.
