Despaigne a Padre?
As first reported by Tim Dierkes of MLBTradeRumors.com, 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.
