  • Padres' Alex Dickerson: Returns to San Diego

    Dickerson (elbow) inked a minor-league deal with the Padres on Thursday.

    Dickerson has spent the past few seasons within the Padres' system, though he failed to play in 2018 after undergoing Tommy John surgery in the spring. He should be fully operational for spring training as the 28-year-old aims to win a spot on the Opening Day roster. In 84 games with the big-league team in 2016, he slashed .257/.333/.455 with 10 home runs and 37 RBI.

  • Padres' Allen Cordoba: Fully healthy

    Cordoba (thumb) is playing in the Panamanian Winter League, Bill Center of MLB.com reports.

    Cordoba is apparently back to health and participating in winter ball after undergoing season-ending thumb surgery in August. The 23-year-old slashed .206/.233/.310 across 45 games with High-A Lake Elsinore in 2018 before being cast off San Diego's 40-man roster.

  • Padres' Fernando Tatis Jr.: Stay in minors could be brief

    Tatis is expected to make his major-league debut in 2019, though he'll likely open the season with Triple-A El Paso, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

    While general manager AJ Preller noted that Tatis is expected to compete for a starting role in spring training, the youngster will likely open the season in the minors as the Padres look to maximize their control over him. That said, it sounds like the soon-to-be 20-year-old could take over as San Diego's starting shortstop after spending just a month or two with El Paso assuming he continues to excel at the highest level of the minors after facing little resistance as one of the youngest hitters in the Texas League in 2018 (.286/.355/.507 with 16 homers and 16 steals in 88 games for Double-A San Antonio).

  • Padres' Luis Urias: Favorite to win keystone job

    Urias (hamstring) is projected to open the 2019 season as the Padres' starting second baseman, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

    Urias made his big-league debut as a 21-year-old in 2018, hitting .208/.264/.354 in 53 plate appearances before suffering a season-ending hamstring strain in mid-September. While he is still working his way back from the issue, Urias is expected to be fully healed heading into spring training, where he'll have the inside track on an everyday gig. The Padres could still choose to hold the youngster back to gain an extra year of control, as they're expected to do with fellow prospect Fernando Tatis. If Urias does break camp with the big club, he could feature as the leadoff hitter given his projection to hit for a solid average (career .306 average in the minors).

  • Padres' Fernando Tatis Jr.: Will compete for job in camp

    General manager AJ Preller told MLB Network Radio on Tuesday that Tatis will "come to camp and most likely compete for" the starting shortstop role.

    Preller acknowledged that Tatis has yet to play above Double-A, but it doesn't sound like that fact will preclude the young shortstop from competing for an Opening Day roster spot. Tatis still seems like a poor bet to break camp with the big-league team -- the Padres figure to hold him back in the minors in order to maximize their control over the talented youngster. The soon-to-be 20-year-old excelled as one of the youngest hitters in the Texas League in 2018, slashing .286/.355/.507 with 16 homers and 16 stolen bases across 88 games with Double-A San Antonio before undergoing season-ending thumb surgery in July. He's back to full health and currently owns a .277/.390/.508 slash line across 19 games with Estrellas in the Dominican Winter League.

  • Padres' Carlos Asuaje: Designated for assignment

    Asuaje was designated for assignment by San Diego on Friday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

    Asuaje played in 79 games for the Padres this past year but slashed a dreadful .196/.286/.280 with just two home runs and 19 RBI. This move allowed the club to free up another spot on the 40-man roster while Asuaje will take a spin through waivers to determine if he will remain in the organization.

  • Padres' Bryan Mitchell: Avoids arbitration

    Mitchell agreed to a one-year, $910,000 contract with San Diego on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.

    The 27-year-old served in both starting and relief roles last season, posting a 5.42 ERA and 1.75 WHIP with 38 punchouts over 73 frames.

  • Padres' Greg Garcia: Avoids arbitration

    Garcia agreed to a one-year, $910,000 deal with the Padres, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.

    San Diego recently claimed Garcia off waivers and, at least for now, the plan is to go into the regular season with him on the 25-man roster. However, it's possible he could still be cut loose before Opening Day if there is a roster squeeze. Garcia hit .221/.309/.304 with three home runs and three steals in 208 plate appearances with the Cardinals last season. Almost all of his value is generated on the defensive side of the ball.

  • Padres' Garrett Richards: Reaches deal with San Diego

    Richards (elbow) agreed to a contract with the Padres on Thursday, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.

    According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, the deal is reportedly worth around $15 million over the next two seasons. Richards underwent Tommy John surgery in July, so he's not expected to be available for the Padres until the 2020 season. Prior to suffering the injury, the right-hander notched a 3.66 ERA and 87:34 K:BB across 16 starts (76.1 innings). While injuries have limited the 30-year-old to just 138.2 innings over the past three seasons, he's proven to be a valuable rotation piece when healthy, posting a combined 3.15 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 8.5 K/9 over the past five seasons (514.2 innings).

  • Padres' Franmil Reyes: Slated for surgery

    Reyes will undergo surgery Thursday to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

    Reyes picked up the injury earlier in the month while playing in the Dominican Winter League, and surgery was ultimately deemed necessary after further evaluation. The procedure typically carries a four-to-eight week recovery timetable, so the expectation is that Reyes will be ready to go for spring training. Prior to suffering the injury, Reyes hit .444/.510/.689 with three homers and six RBI in 13 games for Escogido.

  • Padres' Franmil Reyes: Doctor's visit on tap

    Reyes is scheduled to have his right knee evaluated in San Diego this week, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Reyes was playing in the Dominican Winter League when he first experienced right knee discomfort earlier in the month. The 23-year-old sat out for a week before it was determined that he should return to San Diego for further evaluation. Reyes, who was in the midst of an 11-game hitting streak prior to suffering the injury, compiled a .444/.510/.689 slash line with three homers and six RBI in 13 games for Escogido.

  • Padres' Allen Cordoba: Outrighted to minors

    Cordoba (thumb) was outrighted to Triple-A El Paso on Monday.

    Cordoba, who was designated for assignment last week, was sent to El Paso after passing through waivers unclaimed. The soon-to-be 23-year-old hit .206/.233/.310 across 45 games with High-A Lake Elsinore in 2018 before undergoing season-ending surgery in August.
