Can Cantu be a key to 2011 season?
The 2011 San Diego Padres represent the second roster assembled by Jed Hoyer and his staff. One thing is pretty clear about Hoyer’s philosophy about roster construction; he understands the value of bench players. Last year Jerry Hairston Jr. played a key reserve role for the Friars. This year Jorge Cantu has the chance to impact the Padres on-field fortunes in much the same way.
