Daily Friar 2.21.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Tomorrow is the first game of spring training. As I put out there the other day, Sean O’Sullivan will be making the start for the Padres against the Mariners. It is a great opportunity for him as he grew up in the San Diego area and went to many Padres games as a kid. I love this time of the year, because we get to see everybody on the roster and how they are faring from last season. There are so many questions that need to be answered to like: Who will make the rotation? Can Nick Hundley return to form? Will Everth Cabrera be on the opening day roster? Which prospects will make the opening day roster if any? So a lot to consider for Bud Black, Josh Byrnes and the whole coaching staff. Today I have a lot of articles on the team as a whole as well as updates on Cabrera’s situation and Cameron Maybin’s sore wrist. So here they are:
Submit articles and follow me on twitter

Padres are optimistic Everth’s name will be cleared –

“Shortstop Everth Cabrera said Wednesday he was taken aback to see that his name was linked to Biogenesis, the South Florida anti-aging clinic currently under investigation by Major League Baseball.”

Cameron Maybin is close to full activity – NBC Sports

“Maybin’s wrist has been an issue at times over the past two seasons, so the Padres don’t want to take any chances this early in the spring.”

Padres Preview – Sporting News

“The Padres have too many things that must fall into place for them be competitive, much less a contender. It’s disheartening for a team in a park built for pitching to be concerned about its pitching staff.”

A look at Padres contracts going forward –

“Right now, the Padres have only 5 players signed for 2014 for a total of about $27 Million. This gives them some flexibility to lock up Chase Headley long-term.”

Middle Infield Position Battles – Chicken Friars

“Amarista, Cabrera and Forsythe will make the roster, but highly touted prospect Jedd Gyrko will be on their heels.”

Padres Prospects Spring Expectations – Gaslamp Ball

“A look at each of the Padres prospects in major league camp who show up on various prospects lists. Who has a shot to break with the team? Who might show up later in the season?”
