Rumor Mill: 4/2/14 

Despaigne a Padre?

As first reported by Tim Dierkes of, the Padres and Cuban right-hander Odrisamer Despaigne are close to a deal. Here is a link to Dierkes’ scouting report on the Despaigne back on March 20. Joel Sherman of the New York Post later tweeted that it could still be 3-4 weeks before Despaigne can join the club because of visa issues and having to pass a physical.

Fun fact: Despaigne was born on the same day as Padres OF Cameron Maybin. April 4, 1987.


LaFromboise to El Paso

The Padres announced via twitter that they have claimed left-handed reliever Bobby LaFromboise off waivers from the Seattle Mariners, and have optioned him to El Paso (AAA).
