Anytime I watch spring ball, I always like to look at individual players and matchups. Tommy Medica has been on fire, while Alex Torres looked awful in his first outing. Eric Stults has also been a guy I have liked in his career as a Padre. He is a bulldog, and goes to war with the below-average stuff he possesses. His outing on Sunday left me rather concerned.
- The Padres made some roster moves on Sunday, according to Corey Brock of Padres.com. The team sent minor league pitchers Adys Portillo and Joe Ross to minor league camp. Outfielder Yeison Asencio was optioned to Double-A. Pitcher Juan Oramas was optioned to the Triple-A roster. Outfielder Daniel Robertson was also sent to minor league camp. Currently, the Padres have 56 players in big league camp.
- Corey Brock also has a great piece up, as former Padres catcher Rob Johnson is in minor league camp, attempting to make the transition from catcher to pitcher. Johnson played in 67 games for the 2011 Padres.
