More than 600 families arrived at Petco Park earlier this week, and more than 600 families returned home with a full Thanksgiving meal ready to be enjoyed. The Padres' second annual Thanksgiving Turkey Distribution was a success once again. And the event appears to be growing into a staple of the San Diego community going forward.

Padres sign Colten Brewer to one-year contract; DFA Kyle Lloyd

Brewer, 25, is a right-handed reliever who was drafted in the 4th round of the 2011 draft by the Pittsburgh Pirates. He was selected in the minor league section of the Rule 5 draft by the Yankees in December of 2016 and spent the 2017 season bouncing between their AA and AAA teams, posting a...

Padres Sign Colten Brewer, Designate Kyle Lloyd

The Padres have announced the signing of righty Colten Brewer to a MLB contract. To clear a 40-man spot, the organization designated fellow right-hander Kyle Lloyd for assignment. Brewer, 25, was a minor-league free agent from the Yankees system. He struggled last year in his first, brief attempt at Triple-A, coughing up 13 earned runs on 17 hits in ten innings. But Brewer compiled 41 1/3 innings of 1.31 ERA ball, with 9.4 K/9 against 2.4 BB/9, at the penultimate level of the minors.

The Braves have been stripped of a dozen prospects. Does this mean anything for the Padres?

In the wake of a sweeping set of penalties laid down by the Commissioner’s Office for shady practices, the Braves have been forced to release a dozen prospects, including some of their top talent. Can the Padres benefit from this? The Atlanta Braves did a bad, bad thing. Actually, they did a whole bunch of bad, bad things in the eyes of the MLB Commissioner. As a result, they’ve had several punishments levied down from Rob Manfred’s office, including limitations on future signings,...

Padres add two forgotten men to 40-man roster

The Padres set their roster for the 40-man draft by adding a couple of minor leaguers to protect them from selection, but they curiously kept a bunch of fringe players instead of making room for more young talent. The deadline for MLB teams to set their rosters in preparation for the Rule 5 draft passed at 5pm tonight. That means that any players not “protected” on the 40-man roster (who also meet certain other criteria) are eligible to be selected by the other teams in the league with...

Looking for a Match in a Brad Hand Trade

After entertaining offers from a handful of teams leading up to the 2017 non-waiver trade deadline, the San Diego Padres opted not to trade reliever Brad Hand. But discussions are sure to heat up once again heading into the hot stove season. While the elite lefty is no sure bet to be dealt, the Friars look like a long shot to contend in a tough NL West division and could be well-served to exchange Hand for a package of young talent. Hand followed a breakout 2016 campaign with an equally...
