      Marlins' Tommy Medica: Outrighted, invited to spring training

      Medica was outrighted to Triple-A New Orleans on Thursday, but he still holds an invite to the Marlins' major league spring training, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. After going unclaimed on waivers, Medica will join the Marlins' Triple-A affiliate in New Orleans but he will have a chance to make the big league club out of spring training. Medica has put his best foot forward in previous spring training stints with the Padres and very nearly made their Opening Day roster a year ago, so he could be a sleeper to keep an eye on once camp opens.

      Marlins' Tommy Medica: Designated for assignment

      Medica was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Wednesday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. Medica joined the Marlins in September after being designated for assignment by the Padres in September, but will now go through the waiver process again following the team's signing of Chris Johnson on Wednesday. If he clears, the 27-year-old would no longer be part of the 40-man roster, and would likely be slated to begin the season in the minors.

      Padres first baseman Tommy Medica continues to tear through spring

      Padres first baseman Tommy Medica has been tearing up spring training pitching for the last two seasons. Medica hit .324/.387/.544 last year and so far this spring is at .560/.607/1.000 with three home runs in 25 plate appearances. But the reserve player knows he needs to keep his head on straight, reports MLB.com. "I don't know if it's not thinking about too much when you are at the plate, you're almost just trying to make contact and see what happens," he said. "I think throughout the year you try to do too much at the plate. In spring, stats don't matter. You're up there not trying to do too much." Manager Bud Black knows Medica's bat can come and go from time to time. "Tommy, it's been documented, can be a little streaky," Black said. "Tommy comes advertised as a hitter through our Minor League system. But we have seen flashes of Tommy swinging the bat well in the big leagues."
