Padres' Jacob Nix: Dealing with minor leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nix was held out of Sunday's workout with what the Padres categorized as a "lower leg problem," Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The leg issue is viewed as a short-term concern for Nix, who is attending camp with the big club but not under serious consideration for an Opening Day roster spot. The 22-year-old logged a 4.67 ERA and 1.37 WHIP across 94.1 innings between High-A Lake Elsinore and Double-A San Antonio last season.

Padres' Kirby Yates: Dealing with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates is dealing with a twisted ankle, which the Padres view as a short-term issue, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The injury could result in Yates missing a few workouts, but the expectation is that he'll be ready to face hitters shortly after the Padres open up their Cactus League schedule Friday against the Mariners. Yates looks on track to open the 2018 campaign as the top setup man to closer Brad Hand after registering 20 holds and a 14.0 K/9 rate across 56.2 innings with the Padres and Angles a season ago.

Padres' Jose Pirela: Forced to compete for everyday gig
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirela will likely be forced to compete for the primary starting gig in left field after the Padres agreed to an eight-year contract with free agent Eric Hosmer on Saturday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Heading into the start of spring training, Pirela looked like the favorite to break camp as the Padres' everyday left fielder, but the blockbuster signing of Hosmer now puts Pirela's job security into question. With Hosmer settling in at first base, Wil Myers is set for a full-time role at one of the corner-outfield spots, leaving Pirela to vie with Hunter Renfroe, Franchy Cordero and Alex Dickerson (back) at the opposite spot. Pirela's ability to shift over to second base as well as his strong marks last season against both right- and left-handed pitching could help make his playing time more stable than his competitors, but the 28-year-old still may need a productive spring in order to enter the season with a prominent role.

Padres' Hunter Renfroe: Forced to compete for everyday gig
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Renfroe will have to compete for an everyday role in the corner outfield in spring training after the Padres agreed Saturday with free agent Eric Hosmer on an eight-year contract, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

With Hosmer penciled in for regular at-bats at first base, Wil Myers, the Padres' top slugger, is expected to primarily play the corner outfield for the first time since the 2015 season. Myers will work out mostly as a right fielder Sunday, so it appears playing time in left field is up for grabs for Renfroe and a number of other players, including Jose Pirela, Franchy Cordero and Alex Dickerson (back). Renfroe offers more power upside than any of those players, but his struggles against right-handed pitching to this point in his career -- he owns a .216/.253/.423 line over 375 plate appearances -- may put him at risk of settling for short-side platoon duty.

Padres' Wil Myers: Working out in right field Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers will spend the majority of Sunday's spring training session working out in right field, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

After the Padres' blockbuster addition of Eric Hosmer on Saturday, Myers will get acclimated with both corner-outfield spots again after playing almost exclusively at first base the past two seasons. It appears right field may be the preferred place where manager Bud Black wants to deploy Myers, which would force Hunter Renfroe, Jose Pirela, Franchy Cordero and Alex Dickerson (back) to vie for playing time in left field. Manuel Margot is locked in as the Padres' everyday center fielder.
