Padres' Matt Szczur: Battling oblique issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Szczur is dealing with an oblique injury and remains sidelined from any Cactus League outings, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

The club is taking it slowly with Szczur in order to prevent any sort of setback. There doesn't seem to be any sort of timetable for his return at the moment, but it appears likely that he will be back on the field in the near future. Expect an update on his status early next week.

Padres' Allen Cordoba: Still sidelined with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cordoba has not returned to the field since suffering a concussion earlier in the month, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Cordoba suffered the concussion in a car accident a couple of weeks ago, and it appears he's still not quite back to 100 percent. He remains without a timetable, but the Padres will continue to bring him along slowly. The 22-year-old is expected to open the year in the minors after batting just .208 for the big club last season.

Padres' Alex Dickerson: Dealing with elbow ailment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson is battling an elbow issue in addition to his back injury, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Dickerson has been recovering from back surgery that he underwent last June, though it appears that he was around full health prior to his elbow injury. The club will likely remain overly cautious with Dickerson and ease him back into play, especially since he hasn't received any game action in almost 16 months.

Padres' Jose Pirela: Working out at second base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirela is playing second base in practice Friday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Pirela has 34 career starts at second, though he started just four times there last year compared to 64 times in left field. With the Eric Hosmer signing bumping Wil Myers to the outfield, however, San Diego's outfield has become considerably more cramped. Pirela will compete for time in an outfield corner with Hunter Renfroe, Alex Dickerson, and Franchy Cordero. He'll also be competing with Cory Spangenberg and Carlos Asuaje at second base, but his flexibility should allow him to get a fair number of plate appearances at various spots around the diamond.

Padres' Miguel Diaz: Turning heads in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz, who is scheduled to pitch in relief Friday in the Padres' exhibition opener against the Mariners, has impressed the coaching staff and teammates early in camp with an effective three-pitch mix, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. "[Diaz] was nasty," outfielder Wil Myers said, after taking batting practice against the right-hander Wednesday. "One of the best live BPs I've ever seen."

Though Myers' comments may have been a bit hyperbolic, he's not the only one glowing about Diaz's performance early in camp, as Padres manager Andy Green noted that the 23-year-old is sporting a vastly improved changeup to complement his mid-to-upper-90s slider and quality slider. After making the jump from High-A to the majors last season as a Rule 5 pick, Diaz was predictably overmatched, delivering a 7.34 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 33:25 K:BB and allowing 11 home runs in 41.2 innings. Since he remained on the roster for the entire season, Diaz is eligible to return to the minors in 2018, with an assignment at Double-A San Antonio or Triple-A El Paso likely awaiting him even if he continues to shine in Cactus League play. By virtue of logging 31 appearances in the majors last season, Diaz is likely no longer prospect eligible in most formats, but his development in the minors could be worth tracking in the event he receives a promotion back to the big leagues at some point.
