SAN DIEGO -- The Padres on Monday signed right-handed pitcher Zach Eflin, the team's second overall pick in the 2012 First-Year Player Draft.

San Diego selected Eflin in the first compensation round of the Draft, using a pick they received when Heath Bell signed with Miami.

Eflin, the 33rd overall pick, pitched for Hagerty High School in Oviedo, Fla. The 6-foot-6, 215-pounder went 7-0 with a 0.51 ERA and was a first-team All-Central Florida selection. He had been in San Diego over the weekend taking a physical.
