SAN DIEGO (AP) — Right-hander Jordan Lyles and the San Diego Padres have agreed to a $1 million, one-year contract that includes a club option for 2019.

Lyles gets a $750,000 salary next year under the deal announced Sunday, and the Padres' option is for $3.5 million with a $250,000 buyout.

His 2019 salary would escalate to $4.5 million if he is selected comeback player of the year in 2018 by Sporting News. If the option is exercised, he could earn performance bonuses of $250,000 each for 15, 20 and 25 starts, and of $125,000 apiece for 40 and 50 games pitched.

The 27-year-old joined San Diego in early August, soon after he was released by Colorado. He was 1-5 with a 7.75 ERA in 38 games, including five starts.

Lyles is 28-48 with a 5.43 ERA in seven seasons with Houston, the Rockies and Padres.

Left-hander Travis Wood was designated for assignment to clear a roster spot.

Wood was 4-7 with a 6.80 ERA in 39 games for Kansas City and San Diego last season. The 30-year-old lefty pitched 11 times for the Padres, all of them starts.
