Chris Denorfia and the Volatile Padres

With a combination of high end talent and what should be a weak division, the 2014 San Diego Padres could find themselves in the hunt come September. In a far more realistic universe, the very same Padres team is one with myriad injury risk and a volatile roster that could very well find themselves headed for their fourth straight losing season. Not so coincidentally, the epitome...

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe explains: Chris Denorfia, OF, Padres — While the Red Sox don’t believe they can carry another outfielder, they have expressed some interest in Denorfia, a righthanded bat with a little power who can play center field.

Chapman gives up walk-off HR to Chris Denorfia

If I had to make a list of players who were likely to turn a 98 mph fastball from Aroldis Chapman into a 423-foot, walk-off home run, Chris Denorfia would be like 347th on it. But that’s exactly what happened Monday night. Chapman stepped to the mound in the bottom of the ninth inning with his Cincinnati Reds leading the San Diego Padres 1-0. After walking Yonder Alonso, he leaned...
