Okay I got some rumors for you folks from a secret source deep within the Padres organization.
- There is a gentleman's agreement between Theo Epstein and Kevin Towers. If David Well's can't pitch due to a pre-existing injury then the deal will be for cash. If he pitches fine then the deal is for Kotteras. You heard it here first.
- Klesko missed a few games in Lake Elsinore during his rehab starts. He either had a sore back or sore arm... BUT that day he brought a ton of fresh fish to the club house, from a deep sea fishing excursion earlier in the morning. So his arm/back was fine to cast and reel in big fish, but not okay to play ball? He's got no focus.
Update [2006-9-5 17:26:43 by jbox]:
Kottaras, 23, was added to the 40-man roster and assigned to Double-A Portland, where he will play for the Sea Dogs in the upcoming Eastern League playoffs, the Red Sox announced.
