Padres release 12 minor leaguersNews: The Padres released 12 minor league players, including SP Walter Silva, who made six starts for the big league team last season. Also let loose were pitchers Will Startup, Matt Teague, Andrew Morton, Andrew Bovich and Colin Lynch; outfielders Angel Mercado, Brian Joynt and Jason Codiroli; and infielders Seth Johnston, Julian Alvarez and Joey Railey. Analysis: All of the players mentioned above have no Fantasy appeal, and likely will not even with another organization. With the Padres, they were merely organizational depth. They should not be owned in any Fantasy format.
