AP sources: Padres agree to 1-year deal with Hawpe

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Two people with knowledge of the deal say the San Diego Padres have agreed to terms of a one-year contract with Brad Hawpe to play first base.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity Friday because the deal is pending Hawpe passing a physical exam.

Hawpe will replace three-time All-Star Adrian Gonzalez, who was traded to the Boston Red Sox earlier this month. Hawpe has mostly been an outfielder in seven big league seasons, with a handful of starts at first base. He was released by Colorado in August and signed by Tampa Bay.
