New, 1 comment

Find out what the Padres have been doing in Arizona the past two days.

Everybody's in Peoria, and Spring Training warm ups are in full-swing. Here's what has been going on:

Day 7

  • The entire squad showed up, and started running warm up drills as a full club.
  • Randy Jones fell into a staring contest, but also provided some fielding practice for some fellow pitchers.
  • Andy Green talked all about culture for the new 2016 Friars club. Green had a full speech prepared.

  • Newly acquired Alexei Ramirez showed off exactly why the Padres signed him this offseason.

  • Mike Dee and Peter Seidler talked a bunch about how 2016 is going to be exciting, and that 2015 was so last year.

Day 8

  • Andy Green sprinkled out some information about what he has learned thus far as manager.
  • Carlos Asuaje, acquired from the Kimbrel trade, practiced bunting balls into a bucket.
  • The Friars mostly ran more full squad warm-ups, ran around, executed drills, and slapped butts.
  • This lucky kid was gifted a signed bat from Matt Kemp and his new haircut:
