The move Wednesday comes one day after the Padres declined to tender a contract to shortstop Everth Cabrera, an All-Star in 2013 who has had off-field drug issues.
Analysis: Barmes spent the past three seasons with Pittsburgh. He played in only 48 games this year with 102 at-bats, hitting .245 with seven RBIs. He is a .246 career hitter. Barmes played with division rival Colorado from 2003-10. Cabrera faces charges of resisting arrest and possession of marijuana in a car after he was stopped by authorities in eastern San Diego County on Sept. 3, while he was on the disabled list. He is scheduled to be arraigned Dec. 8.
