News
Padres manager Bud Black called second baseman Jedd Gyorko a "very confident hitter" Tuesday, U-T San Diego reports.

"His intent is to hit," Black said. "He’s a very confident hitter, and when you think you can hit, you swing."

Pitchers exploited Gyorko's aggressiveness last season, and he struck out 100 times in 400 at-bats while hitting .210/.280/.333 with 10 home runs and 51 RBI. He hit better after spending nearly two months on the disabled list due to a plantar fasciitis. He focused on adding muscle this offseason.

"I went a little lighter last year in an attempt to get a little more flexibility," he said. "Obviously, it didn’t work, so I tried to beef back up. I tried to get as strong as I could coming into camp."

The team added plenty of offensive talent this offseason, and the team won't be forced to rely upon Gyorko to be a rock in the heart of the lineup this season.

"Unfairly, we probably put a lot of pressure on Jedd to be a guy in the middle of the order," Black said. “And I think he’ll eventually be a solid run producer there … I think another year of experience, being in amongst a group of (Justin) Upton and (Matt) Kemp, (Carlos) Quentin, whoever might be in the lineup, there will be a little bit of pressure off him to be the guy. I think guys like pressure. Guys want expectations. That’s what makes guys tick … Jedd has that. But when you have good players around you, it does put your mind at ease."

Padres outfielder Wil Myers played three innings at first base during Sunday's spring game against the Mariners in preparation for playing at first base at times during the regular season, per U-T San Diego.

"I consider myself a center fielder first," Myers said Monday morning, "but if they ever need me over there, I'd definitely be willing to go over there and take ground balls and do whatever they need me to do.

"I like it a lot. Any time you can try something new, get out of the outfield and do something new, it's going to be fun."

Padres utilty man Yangervis Solarte will be in the lineup most days. He just doesn't know where. 

"Every day, it's a new place," he said per MLB.com's Corey Brock. "And that's good for me. I can play everywhere. That's a good situation. I can do everything. The more positions I can play, the better it is for me. I think that it can help me and help the team."

"We feel good about Solarte in there," said manager Bud Black.

Solarate has started at three infield positions this spring and is hitting .295. 

"Overall, he's done a nice job moving around the diamond," Black said. "The versatility he brings is very advantageous for us. He brings some offense, some durability."

Elbow - Doubtful for start of season (Updated - 3/29/15)
News
Padres pitcher Cory Luebke threw about 30 fastballs his first bullpen session Sunday, U-T San Diego reports.

"It went well. We wanted to make sure we got through it with no pain and we accomplished that," Luebke said, per MLB.com. "I tried not to let it go too much but at the same time I wanted to get my work in and get my feet wet again. It was good to get the rust out. It's been going on three years. It's the first time I've thrown on a mound without pain in a long time."

Luebke is returning from two Tommy John surgeries and hasn't appeared in a game since April 2012.

News
Padres pitcher Tyson Ross is feeling ready to get the season under way, according to the Press-Enterprise.

“Physically I felt good,” he said. “It’s been a good spring so far, another step in the right direction … I had a good feel for my sinker today and I was able to get some strikeouts with that, running it back away from right-handed hitters and not just using my slider.”

Ross is working on his changeup and he wants to use it more often.

“It’s kind of hard when the other pitches are working well, but it’s going to be a pitch I need to use the third time through the lineup, to get a little separation (in speed) off the fastball and slider,” he said. “I mixed in a couple today and I’m going to keep working it in.”

Manager Bud Black said that could be what he needs to get to the next level.

“It’s tough, because if you take a regular season game and he’s fighting like heck to keep the other team from scoring, you never want to get beat on your third or fourth pitch,” Black said. “The other two are so devastating, it’s tough not to go in that direction.”

On Saturday, the right-hander struck out 12 batters in six innings while giving up six hits and one run.

Ross, 27, has a career ERA of 3.70 with 416 stirkeouts and 186 walks in five years of play.
