    • Hedges signed a one-year, $2.06 million contract with San Diego on Friday, avoiding arbitration., Robert Murray of The Athletic reports. Hedges posted a .231/.282/.429 slash line with 14 home runs in 326 plate appearances in 2018 as he split time with veteran A.J. Ellis and then rookie Francisco Mejia behind the plate. The Padres are likely to give Mejia a chance to earn the starting gig, but Hedges remains a solid defense-first option, though his fantasy outlook will remain limited with playing time not guaranteed.

    • Padres' Austin Hedges: Sticks on bench Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hedges is not in the lineup Monday against the Giants, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Hedges will stick on the bench for a second straight game as rookie Francisco Mejia picks up another start behind the dish. Mejia has now started four of the last five games at catcher, a trend that could continue over the final week of the season as the Padres look to give the younger Mejia ample opportunities.
