Clint Barmes shaking off slow spring start
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Padres infielder Clint Barmes is heating up as spring training closes. 

After getting just four hits in his first 23 at bats, Barmes is four for his last 10. Barmes had no extra base hits in his first 23 at bats, he has a double and a solo homer in the last 10. 

"It's just continuing to work on timing and get my legs underneath me, especially early on in the spring," Barmes said, per U-T San Diego. "Once I felt like, a couple weeks in, I started to get my legs underneath me, then it's just been a process of getting the timing down, defensively as much as offensively."

Padres' Carlos Quentin making progress at first base
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Padres new first baseman Carlos Quentin is continuing to make progress as he adjusts to his new position this spring, reports U-T San Diego.

"It takes time for anybody to comfortable at the major league level, the highest level of baseball, to switch positions. That's tough. But he continues to work on it," said manager Bud Black. "It doesn't happen overnight. But he's putting the time in. He's doing a nice job with all the little intricacies of first base."

Padres' Black on Gyorko: 'He's a very confident hitter'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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."
