Joins Padres for camp

Northcraft signed a minor-league contract with the Padres on Sunday that includes an invite to major-league spring training.
Northcraft got his first taste of major-league action in 2021 and allowed two runs while striking out five in eight innings across five relief appearances. He was less effective in the minors, as he posted an 8.10 ERA and 2.06 WHIP in 13.1 innings across 13 appearances at Triple-A El Paso before being released in July. The right-hander will compete for a spot in the major-league bullpen ahead of the 2022 campaign but is unlikely to have a significant role for the Padres, even if he makes the Opening Day roster.
