Remaining Padres report to Spring Training; Alex Torres is delayed

USA TODAY Sports

Today is the day position players are due to report to Peoria for Spring Training.

Some came early. (I know.) Here are Chase Headley, non-roster invitee Xavier Nady, and Jedd Gyorko hanging out at camp yesterday.

Of course, pitchers and catchers have already been at camp since last Thursday.

Everyone else filtered in this morning.

Well, almost everyone.

Unable to report with the other pitchers last week, and still unable to report with the remainder of the team today, Alex Torres will be a little behind when he gets to camp sometimes between this weekend and the next, according to Corey Brock. When Torres was traded to the Padres from the Rays, he had to file paperwork for a new visa due to his change in employer, and that paperwork is still pending.

Per Brock:

The latest Torres is likely to arrive in Peoria would be the weekend of next week, though that wouldn't put him too far behind. If Torres were a starter, that would be a different story, but since he's a reliever, he figures to have time to prepare.

The Padres play their first Spring Training game on Feb. 27 against the Mariners. If anything, Torres' late arrival will give the organization a little more time early in camp to evaluate a handful of other bullpen hopefuls.

For now, we can enjoy seeing more pictures of the rest of the team working out in Peoria and getting ready for game action starting with their charity game against the hated Mariners on February 27th.
