The San Diego Padres are nearing a deal to sign Jeff Suppan, according to the team. It would be a minor league deal and will include an invite to Spring Training.

Suppan, 37, has 16 seasons as a pro under his belt and has played for the Royals, Cardinals, Red Sox, Brewers, Diamondbacks, and the Pirates. He's holds a career 4.69 ERA and has earned nearly 13 wins above replacement throughout his career -- though that number has been coming down the past few years as he's been worth negative value to his clubs.

He pitched 100 innings at a 3.84 ERA clip for the Brewers and Cardinals in 2011.
