A quiet spring for KT?

There’s was a report on the Internet on Monday that indicated the Padres might have some interest in free agent outfielder Shannon Stewart, though San Diego general manager Kevin Towers said that it’s unlikely the team will bring in any more free agents during Spring Training.

That doesn’t mean Towers won’t consider a trade, though.Barrett_2

"Unless there’s an injury, we’re pretty comfortable with the 64 guys that we have in camp right now," Towers said Monday. "The only thing I could maybe see happening is a potential trade. We have had some discussions with a couple of clubs in the winter that we’ll probably carry those into the season."

One player who likely won’t be traded, though his name has been circulated a bit, is catcher Michael Barrett. Towers likes the idea of having what he considers to be two No. 1 catchers. It remains to be seen how playing time will all break down, but Barrett will play quite a bit.

Cheers, Corey

My husband and I are Cubs fans in Illinois, so I guess that kind of makes up Padres fans by default, as well. We enjoy your page very much. Thanks for the update on Michael.
