Diaz transitioning back to starting role Thursday, 22 February 2018, 9:47 pm

The Padres didn't select Miguel Diaz in the 2016 Rule 5 Draft with the long-term vision that he'd be a reliever. He combines an upper-90s fastball with two impactful (yet still raw) offspeed pitches. The Padres think Diaz is worth more in the long run if he's a part of their rotation. That's just fine with Diaz, who makes his spring debut Friday when the Padres open their Cactus League slate against Seattle.

In SD, Hosmer sees similarities to Royals Tuesday, 20 February 2018, 6:56 pm

Seven years ago, Kansas City was primed to cash in on one of the game's top farm systems.

The same is true of San Diego -- except now Hosmer is the $144 million man and not the bright-eyed youngster.

Submariner Makita realizes Majors dream Thursday, 15 February 2018, 7:01 pm

Padres reliever Kazuhisa Makita was a freshman at Seisei Kogyo High School in Japan when one of his coaches hatched an audacious idea. At the time, Makita's windup was relatively innocuous. But the torque in his body led that coach to believe he might succeed if he lowered his arm angle.
