    Padres, P Nick Martinez fail to complete deal before lockout

    The San Diego Padres and right-hander Nick Martinez were close to an agreement but didn’t get it completed before the owners locked out the players Wednesday night, according to a person with knowledge of the talks. The person said the two sides could revisit a deal once there is a new collective bargaining agreement, but that Martinez remains a free agent. Reports surfaced Wednesday that Martinez and the Padres had agreed to a $20 million, four-year contract.

    D-backs add 4-time All-Star reliever Melancon on 2-year deal

    The Arizona Diamondbacks made a move to solidify the back end of their bullpen on Wednesday, adding four-time All-Star Mark Melancon on a two-year deal worth a reported $14 million. Now the D-backs have to get good enough to provide Melancon some games to actually save. The right-handed Melancon, who will be 37 by opening day, led the big leagues with 39 saves last year in his only season with the San Diego Padres.
