CORY SPANGENBERG RUMORS

Spangenberg displays Zobrist-like versatility

A month ago, Padres manager Andy Green said Cory Spangenberg wouldn't receive a callup unless everyday playing time was available for him at the big league level. Whether it's been third base, second base or left field, Spangenberg has practically created that playing time for himself with his versatility.

Is Spangenberg the answer at 3B, LF?

Shortly after Cory Spangenberg arrived in the Padres' clubhouse Tuesday, manager Andy Green mentioned that Padres fans might be seeing Spangenberg -- or Ryan Schimpf -- in left field as well as third base in the coming weeks. Both positions are trouble spots for the Padres these days.

Let’s Watch Vincent Velasquez Mess With Cory Spangenberg

Against an admittedly terrible Padres lineup, Vincent Velasquez just pitched the game of his life. No matter how high you are on Velasquez’s potential, you should agree he’ll probably never again finish with such a sparkling line: nine innings, no runs, three singles, no walks, 16 strikeouts. Velasquez was constantly around the zone, but the Padres couldn’t do a thing, and...

Spangenberg delivers in MLB debut for Padres

Q&A: Cory Spangenberg, San Diego Padres Infield Prospect

Hindsight being 20/20, Corey Spangenberg was probably an overdraft. Two years ago, the San Diego Padres took the speedy second baseman 10th overall. George Springer and Jose Fernandez, among others, were still on the board. That doesn’t mean Spangenberg won’t be a productive big-leaguer. The 22-year-old has great wheels, and his left-handed stroke shows plenty of promise. Playing...
