Padres' Wil Myers: Gives nod to Hosmer deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers gave his approval to the Padres' signing of first baseman Eric Hosmer, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Myers, who hit 30 home runs as San Diego's starting first baseman in 2017, will move back to the outfield to accommodate the Padres' acquisition of Hosmer. He came up to the majors as a right fielder with the Rays, but has played the outfield in just 10 games over the last two seasons.

Padres' Eric Hosmer: Signs with San Diego
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hosmer and the Padres have agreed to terms on a deal, Keith Acee of the San Diego Union-Triubne reports. The terms of the deal are eight years with an opt-out clause after five, per Jon Morosi of MLB Network.

At first blush, the addition of Hosmer appears redundant as the Padres employed Wil Myers (30 HR) as an everyday first baseman in 2017, but AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports Myers is on board with the deal and has agreed to move back to the outfield. Hosmer slashed .318/.385/.498 in 2017 and banged out 25 home runs for a second consecutive season.

Padres' Rowan Wick: Claimed by Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wick was claimed off waivers by San Diego on Friday, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Wick was designated for assignment by the Cardinals on Wednesday after the team acquired right-hander Bud Norris. He will provide some added organizational depth to the Padres' bullpen, although he will in all likelihood begin the campaign at the Triple-A level. Wick has yet to play in a major-league contest entering his age-25 season, and he recorded a 5.40 ERA and 1.42 WHIP with Triple-A Memphis in 2017.

Padres' Jose Pirela: Favorite to start in left
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Andy Green said that Pirela is expected to win the starting job in left field and will also receive some reps at the keystone during spring camp, MLB.com's AJ Cassavell reports.

Pirela hit .288/.347/.490 with 10 home runs and 40 RBI in 83 games for San Diego last year, and it appears as though he's the heavy favorite to grab the corner outfield spot in 2018. It seems unlikely that Pirela would spend any time at second base with Cory Spangenberg, Carlos Asuaje and Freddy Galvis all capable to handle the position, but it will give the 28-year-old a little more experience if he's thrust into the role.

Padres' Kyle McGrath: Competing for final bullpen spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGrath is in the running for one of the last spots in San Diego's bullpen, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

All McGrath has done is produce out of the bullpen, as he never had an ERA north of 3.00 in a full season in the minors. He carried his success into a September callup last year as well, as he posted a 1.46 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP in 12 appearances in that month. His performance wasn't as flashy as fellow reliever Buddy Baumann, but McGrath certainly has a legitimate claim to a spot in the Padres' relief corps.
