PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) - The San Diego Padres have signed third baseman Mike Olt to a minor league contract.

Olt was scheduled to work out with minor leaguers Friday. The deal didn’t include an invite to big league camp.

The once highly touted Olt was released by the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday. He hit .191 in 102 games with the Cubs and White Sox last season.

Padres manager Andy Green says they wanted to give the 27-year-old Olt “an opportunity to reestablish himself as a player.”
