Garage Sale Recap
Today while listening to Padres General Manager Josh Byrnes speak with Darren Smith on the Mighty 1090 the conversation bounced from a weird type of ball game played by front office personnel, then to Chase Headley‘s calf, before finally settling in to my main concern this spring – Max Fried‘s tender forearm.

San Diego Padres pitching prospect Max Fried has been shut down for at least two weeks after experiencing forearm soreness, according to Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune. Padres GM Josh Byrnes told Lin that the soreness was in the flexor mass region, but there was no sign of any ligament problems on an MRI.

The team posted a .623 winning percentage in the first half to clinch a spot in the playoffs, but limped through...
We caught up with 2012 first-round pick Max Fried after his start Thursday evening to get his thoughts on his first full year in the system. The 20-year-old lefty from Los Angeles has shown flashes of the ability that earned him recognition as the top lefty in the minors this offseason, but has struggled to find the consistency he’ll need as he advances through the system.
Jason parks of Baseball Prospectus released his Prospects Will Break Your Heart: Mid-Season Top 50 Prospects list today and in it we see movement from the following Padres properties:
Austin Hedges: From #19 to #13
Max Fried: From #61 to #47
That could have been the battery for UCLA in last night’s College World Series championship game. Sorry UCLA, I’m not sorry.
2012 first round pick Max Fried led the TinCaps to a shutout win against first place Bowling Green. Sadly, that was the lone highlight in the system as Matt Andriese and John Hussey were hit hard and their respective offenses could not recover.
