AUSTIN HEDGES RUMORS

San Diego Padres Prospect Profile: Austin Hedges

San Diego Padres: Three prospects that can make an impact this season

The past few seasons for the San Diego Padres have been less than spectacular. The Padres boast a 388-422 win/loss record with only one winning season from 2009-2013, but what they have done well through those years is identify and develop prospects. 2014 is no different, and is proving to hold a promising crop of young talent, some who have a chance to be called up and contribute...

Strong Coffee and Prospect Lists

Yesterday MLB.com released their 2014 Prospect Watch top 100 and four Padres found themselves on the list.

After a brief rest, I bid farewell to Mrs. D and piled with my fellow conference...
