Infielder Justin Smyres will join the Fort Wayne Wizards for a second time after spending a few days…
A full boat
Minor league spring camp begins in earnest on Sunday, March 7, after position players make their way to Peoria.
The morning workout had a chill in the air and several of the pitchers could be seen warming up their hands by blowing on them. Rain did not shorten this session.
David Wells got his first chance to bat on Tuesday, playing a game of pepper with several teammates. Eventually, Wells would end up on the fielding side of pepper and had to clean up after Dennis Tankersley missed a grounder.
The Padres signed three players out of an invite-only tryout camp held this past weekend. Infielder Skip Adams, first baseman Cole Hilt and right-handed pitcher Shane Roelle were all signed to 2004 contracts to join the Fort Wayne Wizards (Single-A).
Adams, 24, played in a combined 50 games between Kansas City of the Independent Northern League (26 games) and Niagara of the Canadian Baseball League. He batted .311 with six home runs and 27 RBI.
Hilt, 22, played in 21 games for Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho. He batted .306 with three home runs, six doubles and 23 RBI for the Warriors.
Roelle, 24, last played organized baseball for Hastings College (NE) in 2002. He went 0-2 with a 14.90 ERA (32 ER/19.1 IP) in eight games (seven starts) for the Broncos.
