Padres' Cesar Vargas: Will have to earn spot on roster as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas will have to make the roster as a starter, AJ Casavell of MLB.com reports.

Vargas returned from the Mexican Winter League ready to compete for a roster spot this spring. It appears as though the Padres are taking a "starter or bust" approach with the 25-year-old, ruling out the possibility of making the roster as a reliever. Even with the Padres' lack of talent in the starting pitching department, it would be hard to consider Vargas a favorite to win one of the remaining rotation spots. He showed some promise as a reliever as recently as 2015 in the Yankees' organization (2.79 ERA over 67.2 innings with Double-A Trenton), but San Diego seems dead set on making him a starter.

Padres' Jarred Cosart: Bullpen an option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cosart is currently competing for a rotation spot in San Diego, but he could end up as a reliever if he doesn't make the cut, reports.

Cosart -- who underwent elbow surgery this past offseason -- had a season to forget in 2016, finishing with an ugly 6.00 ERA and had more walks issued than strikeouts. The loose bodies in his elbow may have contributed to the poor results, but he never had extended periods of success as a starter prior to last season. If Cosart's arm is healthy and he can get his fastball velocity back into the mid-to-high 90s, then a move to the bullpen could help revive his career. As a starter, he won't have much fantasy value heading into the season.

Padres' Christian Friedrich: Bullpen an option if he misses rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Friedrich -- who is competing for a spot in the starting rotation -- could be used in the bullpen if he doesn't make it as a starter, AJ Casavell of MLB.com reports.

Friedrich got a long look as a starter last season and didn't do much with his opportunity, posting a 4.80 ERA with a 1.92 K/BB ratio. While the numbers weren't pretty, he does have have the advantage of being a southpaw in the competition for rotation spots. If he does make it as a starter, he would only garner very deep or NL-only value.

Padres' Luis Perdomo: Rotation or bust
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Updating a previous note, Perdomo will have to make the rotation or risk being left off the 25-man roster, AJ Casavell of MLB.com reports.

Prior to pitchers and catchers reporting, it sounded like Perdomo was a safe bet to make the rotation. Now the club seems to have taken a "make or break" stance with their hard-throwing righty. That being said, Perdomo would have to really screw up this spring to miss the cut, especially considering how poor San Diego's rotation looks right now.

Padres' Tyrell Jenkins: Will compete for starting job
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jenkins (elbow) will compete for one of the Padres' final two starter spots, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Jenkins went on a carousel of getting DFA'd and claimed this offseason, but the Padres decided to take a chance on the former top prospect. Manager Andy Green has already told the young pitcher to "go back to being an athlete," implying that the Braves tried tinkering with his delivery too much. Jenkins will compete for one of the Padres' final spots in the rotation, but he could also make the 25-man roster as a long or middle reliever as well. Even if he makes the club as a starter, he will have to show immediate improvement over last year's 5.88 ERA before fantasy owners take notice.
