Padres Give Gonzalez, Hensley Contracts

The San Diego Padres and first baseman Adrian Gonzalez agreed to a one-year contract Thursday that will pay him $380,500 - $500 more than the major league minimum - after batting .304 with 24 homers and 82 RBIs last season.

The club also came to terms with pitcher Clay Hensley on a one-year, $392,000 deal. The right-hander struck out 122 batters and went 11-12 with a 3.71 ERA in 29 starts last year, including 8 relief appearances.
