Padres pitching prospect Max Fried (forearm) will play catch on Monday.

Fried was shut down after dealing with forearm soreness last month, but the move was viewed as precautionary. The Padres will bring the young lefty along slowly, so expect him to miss the beginning of the minor league season.

Max Fried (forearm) is expected to resume his spring throwing program in 10-14 days.

Fried was shut down in February after experiencing soreness in his left forearm, but an exam Tuesday showed no major structural damage and the young southpaw should only be slightly behind when the regular season starts. The No. 7 overall pick in the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft, Fried will be looking to make a good impression in his second full year as a pro.

Padres prospect Max Fried has been shut down for a minimum of two weeks due to foream soreness.

Fried, the No. 7 overall pick in 2012, reported the soreness in the flexor-mass area of his arm after throwing long-toss from 120 feet earlier this month. Padres general manager Josh Byrnes said results were "benign" following an MRI and the soreness was muscular in nature and not related to the ligament, but the 20-year-old will rest until the symptoms subside.

Corey Brock of hears that the Padres will announce Friday that they have signed first-round pick Max Fried.

Fried, a high school left-hander out of California, was selected No. 7 overall in last Monday's First-Year Player Draft. Dan Hayes of the North County Times reports that he'll get the recommended slot value of $3 million.

Padres selected high-school LHP Max Fried with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2012 draft.

Widely considered the top high-school lefty in this year's draft class, Fried doesn't have an overpowering fastball, but boasts excellent command and secondary pitches. A wiry 6-foot-4, 170 pounds, however, he will need to fill out his frame as he refines his pitches on the farm. Fried has drawn (loose) comparisons to Barry Zito.
