Padres' Christian Bethancourt: Scheduled for spring debut Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bethancourt will make his first Cactus League pitching appearance Wednesday, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

After lots of work in the offseason to develop him as a pitcher, the right-handed fireballer will finally get to strut his stuff against major league competition. He's also scheduled to DH later in the week, showing that the Padres want to keep all options open for the future, but if his spring debut goes well, Bethancourt could work his way into more consistent bullpen work throughout the season.

Padres' Christian Bethancourt: Targeting March for Cactus League pitching debut
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bethancourt is targeting early March for his Cactus League pitching debut, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The Padres have been working with the catcher on his pitching mechanics, and recently clocked his fastball at 97 mph during a Panama Winter League game. Although the Padres have been unclear about his role going forward, his powerful arm could see him in the bullpen more often than expected. Last year with the Padres, the 25-year-old pitched 1.2 scoreless innings in two games and slashed .228/.265/.368 in 204 plate appearances.

Padres' Christian Bethancourt: Slated to pitch in Panama Winter League
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bethancourt will pitch in the Panama Winter League soon, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The Padres have been working with the catcher on his pitching mechanics, and he recently had his fastball clocked at 97 miles per hour. Bethancourt is even developing a changeup, although the Padres are still insisting that he is not fully converting to the mound. His role for the 2017 season should become clearer once he logs some innings in Panama, although his high-octane arm could push him to the bullpen more frequently if all goes well over the winter.

Padres' Christian Bethancourt: Throws bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bethancourt (intercostals) threw a bullpen session Saturday, Jack Magruder of FanRag Sports reports.

Manager Andy Green is reportedly "intrigued" by Bethancourt's ability on the pitching mound, having seen him throw 96 mph without any work on his mechanics. A catcher by trade, Bethancourt's arm strength is unquestionably his strongest asset. He has hit just .223/.253/.318 in 153 games at the major league level, but it doesn't sound like the Padres are planning to have him focus exclusively on pitching -- they may instead try to develop him into a catcher/outfielder/pitcher hybrid player.

Padres' Christian Bethancourt: Likely out for rest of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bethancourt (intercostal) is likely to miss the remainder of the season, A.J. Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Bethancourt has been on the disabled list with an intercostal strain since August 31, a core injury that is notorious for long rehab times. Considering the Padres are well outside the playoff picture, they'll play it safe and let Bethancourt heal over the offseason. If he is indeed done, he'll finish with a .228/.265/.368 batting line -- certainly poor, but he'll finish with an OPS above .600 for the first time in three seasons.
