San Diego Padres 2013: 4 Veteran Free-Agent Pitchers the Friars Should Go After

The San Diego Padres have made it publicly known that their offseason agenda was to add two starting pitchers to their 2013 rotation.  Names like Edwin Jackson, Daisuke Matsuzaka and Shaun Marcum have all been discussed and are considered to be realistic targets for general manager Josh Byrnes. If Byrnes is able to land one of those three, and with the recent signing of starter Jason Marquis, the Padres should still consider adding another veteran arm to their staff for the 2013 season.  

Even with Petco Park's highly anticipated and long-awaited new dimensions, it is still highly regarded as a spacious pitchers' park and a prime destination for veteran hurlers looking to resurrect a career.  With the Padres' recent track record of injuries, adding a low-risk, high-reward free agent would be a smart choice should their pitching staff once again be plagued with trips to the disabled list.  

Let's take a look at a few of these free-agent pitchers who are looking for a comeback but could also benefit from a change in scenery and bring needed veteran leadership to a relatively young Padre rotation.
