Latest News

Recent News's Corey Brock said "barring a deal in the next three weeks," Derek Norris, Austin Hedges and Christian Bethancourt will be competing for two roster spots.
The Padres are only expected to keep two catchers, which means either Bethancourt or Hedges will be left off the Opening Day roster. Norris is the best hitter of the group but won't see as much playing time this year now that Wil Myers has been installed as the full-time first baseman. Hedges has excelled defensively but hasn't shown he can hit at the big-league level yet. Bethancourt was acquired from Atlanta at last month's Winter Meetings. He hit .200 in 155 at-bats for the Braves in 2015. Jan 28 - 2:41 PM
