News
Padres manager Bud Black has been impressed by how pitcher Brandon Morrow has handled his various ailments as well as his overall approach to the mound, MLB.com reports.

"I like his delivery, I like his arm action, I like his stuff," Black said. "First of all, I think he's got a good head. We're still getting to know him. We've only known him less than two weeks. But we like what we've seen."

Morrow has made just 16 starts across the last two season while dealing with forearm and hand injuries. As a result, he says he's begun doing a "pre-hab" program, which is "basically doing what you're doing in rehab, but doing it before you get hurt."

Morrow is competing for a rotation spot, but he doesn't look at the early portion of camp as a competion.

"The last three starts are when it will be more competition mode, I guess," Morrow said. "Right now, I'm still trying to get my arm and body in shape and easing into that. I'm not going to try and go out and blow it out in live batting practice ... Rather than just trying to strike everybody out, I'm going out there and doing some pitching. It's still the same repertoire and still mostly the same approach. But it's taking some speed off here, adding it here."

Morrow posted ERAs of 5.63 and 5.67 in his last two seasons in Toronto while battling through injuries.

News
Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko is working on his swing in the early stages of camp, and one area of focus is keeping his hips aligned to not be vulnerable to pitches away, MLB.com reports.

"We're making sure the hips stay in so they don't come out like they did at the beginning of last year to make sure everything is working in the right direction," Gyorko said of his work with hitting coach Mark Kotsay. "It allows me to see the ball a little longer and a little better. It will allow me to hit the ball the other way with power or just shoot it the other way, and gets me on time to pull the ball so I don't get jammed."

Gyorko played just 111 games last season due to plantar fasciitis, hitting .210/.280/.333 with 10 home runs and 51 RBI in 400 at-bats.

News
After battling through wrist, back, calf, finger and hand injuries during his time with Boston, Padres third baseman Will Middlebrooks is swinging the bat without any pain. 

"It was tough," Middlebrooks said Tuesday, per the Associated Press. "It was a process of learning what I can play through and what I couldn't. My mentality is if I can go at all, I'm going to try to play. And I feel like that kind of played against me last year."

After being the opening day starter at third base for two years with Boston, injuries muddled his opportunity to make an impact.

"I learned my lesson. I learned how to take care of myself a little better," Middlebrooks said. "Now I know, but unfortunately I learned the hard way."

The Padres are hoping a fresh start will allow Middlebrooks to reach the potential he failed to achieve in Boston.

"His swing is powerful. Lot of power to all fields," Padres manager Bud Black said. "We saw what he did in 2012 before he got injured. We think where he is age-wise, there's a lot of potential."

News
Padres outfielder Cameron Maybin will hit leadoff in the team's first spring game, according to MLB.com.

Manager Bud Black basically confirmed the news, though he wouldn't make it official as he prefers to let the player know before the media. Maybin is the forgotten man in the team's outfield heading into camp. While he's proven he can play center field, the club is expected to go with Matt Kemp, Wil Myers and Justin Upton when the regular season starts. 

Maybin, 27, hit .235/.290/.331 over 251 at-bats last season.

News
Padres thirdbasemen Will Middlebrooks and Yangervis Solarte are both battling to get the starting nod at third base during spring training, but the two are getting along just fine so far, reports UTSanDiego.com.

"I'm trying to help him, he's trying to help me," Middlebrooks said. "We're working together, we're having fun and we're competing. It's for the team, and I think it'll be good if we both push each other."

Middlebrooks hit .191 with two home runs and 19 RBI in 215 plate appearances for the Red Sox in 2014.

He is also okay if he ends up playing a different position down the line.

"Third base is the priority," he said, "but wherever I can get in the lineup, wherever I can help us win some baseball games, that's what's important for me."

Meanwhile, Solarte is doing what he can to help Middlebrooks adjust to his new surroundings.

"That's competing," Solarte said. "For me, it's my teammate. I want to work hard with him and make it fun, too."

Since Padres starting pitcher James Shields pitched deep into the postseason last year with the Royals, the coaching staff has him slightly behind the other starters in camp, per U-T San Diego.

"Fortunately, we don't have to start him until a little bit further -- he's not starting in the first three (spring-training) games -- but he'll be fine," pitching coach Darren Balsley said. "It's no big deal."
