Padres shortstop Alexi Amarista grateful to have starting job
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Padres shortstop Alexi Amarista is ready for the challenge of entering the season as a starter for the first time in his career, per MLB.com.

"I'm blessed that they gave me the opportunity and that gave me more confidence, being an everyday player," he said.

Monitoring Amarista's progress will be one thing Padres general manager A.J. Preller will watch closely this spring.

"I think, in general, we're really more anxious just to see how the spring training goes for the infield, in the middle of the infield, with Alexi and Clint Barmes, we're hoping we're covered," Preller said.

Brett Wallace could emerge as bench option for Padres
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Brett Wallace is in camp on a minor-league deal looking to earn his way onto the Padres' roster, and the good news for him is that he already has the attention of manager Bud Black, who views the former first-round pick as a potential bench option.

“We think he’s a bat, a corner position, a left-handed bat with some power,” Black said, per U-T San Diego. “I think there’s a natural hitter to this guy that might lend himself to the National League as a bench player. So we’ll see how the spring goes, but there’s a lot to like about him.”

Wil Myers among the candidates to hit leadoff for Padres
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Padres don't have a prototypical leadoff hitter on their 40-man roster, so manager Bud Black is already trying to pare down the potential candidates he does have at his disposal, per U-T San Diego.

Yangervis Solarte, Will Venable, Cameron Maybin and Wil Myers -- let’s start there,” Black said of the options at the top of his list.

However, of that list of players, Myers is the only one assured of playing every day. He has a career .324 on-base percentage.

Report: A's could get priced out of signing Cuban 2B Hector Olivera
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

With the competition heating up to sign Cuban second baseman Hector Olivera, it appears the chances of the Athletics signing him are dwindling, per InsideBayArea.com.

“It seems like the A’s are going to get priced out of the competition,’’ a source said. “There are teams out there that can simply outbid Oakland.’’

The Dodgers, Padres, Red Sox and Yankees all have interest in Olivera, according to the report. Olivera hit .323 with a .407 on-base percentage, .505 slugging percentage and .912 OPS over 10 seasons in Cuba.
