No closer to signing a pitcher. The Padres are apparently talking to free agents Joe Saunders and Brett Myers. The Tigers could be losing interest in trading Rick Porcello. The Twins have been one of the other teams tied to Myers, while Center says Minnesota, Baltimore and the New York Mets have also expressed interest in Saunders. Beyond Saunders and Myers, the Padres are reconsidering a pursuit of Detroit Tigers starter Rick Porcello. The right-hander reportedly became available when the Tigers re-signed Anibal Sanchez. So far this offseason the Padres have been tied to several starters in their pursuit of additional arms. Before they signed elsewhere, San Diego expressed interest in Edwin Jackson and Dan Haren.

Hundley gets another chance after forgettable 2012

Yasmani Grandal's 50-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball's drug policy has given Nick Hundley the opportunity to relaunch his catching career. It was Hundley's terrible 2012 that triggered Grandal's sooner-than-expected promotion to the San Diego Padres. Grandal made the most of his chance.
