A lot of Padres links …

Nice to be back at PETCO Park tonight after two days off, including a travel day back from St. Louis. Here’s some Padres reading to bring you up to speed.


Not only did first-round pick Donavan Tate sign for $6.25 million, but he took batting practice at PETCO on Tuesday.Second-round pick Everett Williams also signed Monday and was here at PETCO on Wednesday to take batting practice.

The Padres have a trio of players up for the Hank Aaron Award. How about the month Adrian Gonzalez is having?

Minor League pitcher Simon Castro threw a no-hitter for Fort Wayne on Tuesday. If you get a chance, check out the TinCaps overall record this season. Wow.

Don’t be surprised if pitcher Sean Gallagher, the key piece in the Scott Hairston trade with the A’s last month, gets in a few innings before the season is over.

Edgar Gonzalez started a Minor League rehab stint on Wednesday with Class A Lake Elsinore. He’ll play 10 or so games there before returning in September.
