Wil Myers Has a Tough Adjustment Ahead of Him

A marriage between Eric Hosmer and the San Diego Padres seemed weird on a few different levels, but it didn’t stop the organization from striking a deal with the free-agent first baseman to the tune of eight years and $144 million (with an opt-out clause after the fifth year).

Padres claim a new unicorn off waivers

Padres claim righty pitcher Rowan Wick from the Cardinals. He’s a raw converted catcher. Think Christian Bethancourt 2.0

With Jose Torres placed on MLB’s Restricted List, the Padres had an open 40-man slot. Some predicted that the roster spot might get claimed by a veteran first baseman with a freshly-minted seven-figure contract. Nope.
