Padres Avoid Arbitration With Will Venable 

Padres logoAccording to The Union Tribune (via twitter), the Padres have avoided arbitration with Will Venable agreeing to $2.675 million for 2013.

Venable is coming off a 2012 where in 417 at bats he posted a .264/.335/.429 slash line while hitting 9 home runs and driving in 45 RBIs. These numbers have been on par with what he has been capable of for most of his career so far.

Will split time platooning in right with Chris Denorfia and will most likely continue to do so coming into this season. There was talk earlier of the Padres potentially looking at a corner outfield replacement, but as with most of the Padres’ offseason nothing came about.

Born and raised in San Diego and a Padres fan since day one. On that fateful night of September 6, 1989 when I came into this world, the game was on in the delivery room and the Padres beat the Astros and I have been forever engrained with Padre blood. I have followed sports my whole life and have written the Daily Friar for over a year and enjoy bringing all of you the news each morning.

    MLBTR had him projected at 2.5M. The Venanorf combo will cost the Padres $5.675M in 2013.
