Merry Christmas the Padres sign three pitchers

New, 31 comments

I just wanted to log in real quick and wish you all a Merry Christmas. I hope Scanlan's foot gets better, I saw him limping around tonight.  The Padres just peeked in their stockings and found a bullpen, which is nice.

The Padres signed three pitchers:

The Padres signed right-handed pitchers Kevin Correia, Chris Britton and Oneli Perez to Minor League deals along with catcher Eliezer Alonzo. San Diego also agreed to a one-year deal with infielder Luis Rodriguez.

Former Giants pitcher Correia signs deal with his hometown team

“Some other clubs offered more money,” said his agent, Barry Axelrod. “For the teams that are more cost conscious, they thought he might be a bargain. He wants to be a starter. It looks like a wide-open competition would be available (with the Padres).”

Tom Krasovic sketches out what he thinks the starting rotation will look like next year.  Here are the candidates:

  1. Jake Peavy
  2. Chris Young
  3. Cha Seung Baek
  4. Josh Geer
  5. Wade LeBlanc
  6. Chad Reinike

Remember this is the season where we can hope this sort of thing is true:

Thus the last will be first, and the first, last

Merry Christmas to you and yours!
