Found March 11, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Generally, plantar fasciitis is an injury seen in basketball players more than baseball players, but that's exactly what Logan Forsythe is dealing with.  The San Diego Padres' utility infielder will be sidelined thanks to ongoing pain in his foot and heel. Forsythe will miss a few days (3-4, likely) thanks to the injury says Bill Center of the San Diego Union Tribune.  The good new for the Padres, though?  This is just their first real injury of the spring.  For a team who couldn't stay off the disabled list last year, that might be a good sign.  And fortunately, Fortsythe's injury is not terribly severe based on the estimated downtime. “He’s got a foot issue and we’re going to stay away from it for three or four days,” Padres manager Bud Black said after Forsythe missed a second straight day. “We’re having it looked at.” Forsythe had received plenty of playing time with the Padres over the last couple of seasons because of the club's inability to solve their middle infield problems.  San Diego probably still doesn't have a solution for second base or shortstop, but Forsythe will figure prominently in those positions. In his career, Forsythe has played in 153 games.  He is a career .254/.323/.357 hitter.  The Padres love his dedication and hustle.  They used him much more because of that dedication last season.  Forsythe appeared in 91 games last season.

30-1 MLB countdown previews: #19 Padres

It is difficult to predict which teams will overachieve during spring training. Yet, you will still find some who claimed to know the 2012 Orioles and Athletics would be as good as they were. Sometimes over thinking leads to faulty predictions. Looking at the finish the San Diego Padres had to the 2012 season, it is my educated guess to see this team taking a major step when it comes...

The Padres lost a rough game yesterday against the Cubs. Jason Marquis started the game off very well, but the guys behind him were unable to get the job done. Marquis pitched four scoreless innings while only giving up two hits; he also struck out two. Tim Stauffer then came in and didn’t fare as well. In two innings of work Stauffer gave up four runs on four hits, one of them...

Daily Friar 3.12.13

The Padres must have felt like they were in batting practice yesterday. In total they hit five doubles and four home runs in route to a very strong win over the Oakland A’s. In fact the pitching even had very little trouble all day as the staff collectively gave up just four hits. It’s nice to see everything work out even if it is just in spring. The bats were heating up as the...
