Quackenbush isn't thought of as highly by the Padres these days, but he's still a decent enough option as the fourth or fifth righty in a team's pen. He shouldn't have any fantasy value.

According to Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune, the Mariners have spoken to the Padres about acquiring bullpen help.

Kevin Quackenbush, Nick Vincent and Jon Edwards are the three targets that the two sides have reportedly discussed. The Mariners have one open spot that has yet to be decided in the Opening Day bullpen, and it looks as though they'd like to fill that vacancy from outside the organization.

Kevin Quackenbush (hamstring) will throw one more live batting practice session before being cleared to make his Cactus League debut.

Quackenbush has been a little behind after tweaking his hamstring early on in Arizona. The setup man has plenty of time to catch and should be game-ready in a few days.

Kevin Quackenbush (hamstring) is scheduled to throw off a mound this weekend in Padres camp.

It'll either happen Friday or Saturday, per MLB.com's Corey Brock. Quackenbush was slowed for about a week by a mild hamstring strain. The right-handed setup man has plenty of time to catch back up.

Kevin Quackenbush is being held out of workouts on Saturday due to a mild hamstring strain.

The 27-year-old hurler is one of many candidates competing for a role at the back-end of the Padres bullpen this spring. He has done a nice job through his first two big league seasons, compiling a 3.28 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 114/38 K/BB ratio across 112 2/3 innings.

MLB.com's Corey Brock writes that Jon Edwards and Kevin Quackenbush are currently "front-runners" to close for the Padres.

The Padres have traded both Craig Kimbrel and Joaquin Benoit over the winter, leaving them potentially vulnerable at the back-end of the bullpen. Quackenbush saved six games for San Diego in 2014, but he spent time in the minors last season and posted a pedestrian 4.01 ERA. Edwards has a big arm and has struck out 31 over 25 big league frames, but he's often had control issues. Ultimately, it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Padres add a closer before spring training.

Padres recalled RHP Kevin Quackenbush from Triple-A El Paso.

Quackenbush was demoted in early June and has pitched marvelously during his time with El Paso this year, owning a 0.77 ERA and 14/2 K/BB ratio over 11 2/3 relief innings. He'll fill a middle relief role with the big club.
