Federowicz Questions Will Soon Be Resolved

Photo: San Diego U-T As the MLB trade deadline lingers just ahead, many have ventured to say that not a single player on the San Diego Padres is truly “safe” until July 31 passes. Yet another player who applies to this rule is six-year catcher Tim Federowicz, who has been recovering from a March knee surgery and playing in the minors for the past number of weeks. The ex-Dodger...

Derek Norris Legs Are Jell-O (Probably)

During this past offseason the Padres jettisoned two catchers, one coming off a career year, the other a highly coveted young player who’s ceiling had yet to be reached. To replace those losses, the Padres added a slugging catcher from Oakland and a defensive minded, though offensively stunted, catcher from Los Angeles in the Matt Kemp trade. With Derek Norris, Tim Federowicz,...

Padres Rumor Mill: 3/27/15

The Search for a Back-up Catcher With the loss of Tim Federowicz for 3-6 months, it is unclear who the Padres plan to back-up starting catcher Derek Norris. 11-year veteran Wil Nieves seems to be the lead candidate for the spot, especially now that catching prospect Austin Hedges has been optioned to minor-league camp. However, earlier this week, George King III of the...

MLB News: A.J. who? A look at the man who revived San Diego Baseball

The hype surrounding baseball in San Diego is real, and strong at the moment, and it’s all thanks to one man (and front office.) A.J. Preller, was hired as the General Manager of the San Diego Padres on August 6 of this year, while the Friars were in the midst of a 52-61 season. His impact wasn’t immediately felt, but this off-season, the baseball world has learned the name...

Thoughts on the Matt Kemp Trade

The Padres have made an uncharacteristically loud splash this holiday season. As fans complained about inactivity at the Winter Meetings here in San Diego, the team tuned out the noise and dealt Yasmani Grandal, Joe Wieland, and Zach Eflin to the Dodgers for Matt Kemp, Tim Federowicz, and $31 million. With a laughably incompetent offense and a disillusioned fan base, the Padres have...

I think we’ve all accepted the inevitability that Matt Kemp was going to be traded for a few days now, and today, as painful as it is to contemplate, that time is here. Kemp, extraneous backup catcher Tim Federowicz, and $32 million have been traded to San Diego for catcher Yasmani Grandal, pitcher Joe Wieland and minor league pitcher Zach Eflin.

Dodgers Acquire Ryan Lavarnway Three Years Too Late

I’m pretty sure I really wanted Ryan Lavarnway like three years ago, when he was putting up a combined .290/.376/.563 with 32 homers in his age-22 season at Double- and Triple-A. I imagine if I dug into the archives, you’d find me complaining that the Dodgers got Tim Federowicz from Boston and not Lavarnway. Now, they have both, since the team has DFA’d Drew Butera in order...

It shouldn’t have — Pierzynski is 37 and hitting .254/.286/.348 for a last-place club — but it did. It got me thinking that A.J.
