Padres would benefit from DH

If the National League employed designated hitters, San Diego could move Matt Kemp from the outfield and use Wil Myers in right. Instead, the Pads will experiment with Myers at first in 2016 after center field didn't treat him well. DH candidates for NL teams

Reports: Kennedy, Royals agree to $70M deal

Right-hander Ian Kennedy will join the world champion Royals as the sides have agreed to a five-year deal worth $70 million, according to multiple media reports.

Padres avoid arbitration with two more

San Diego announced one-year deals with Andrew Cashner and Tyson Ross, thus avoiding arbitration with its four eligible players. Deals with Derek Norris and Drew Pomeranz were previously announced.

What are the Padres' plans at short?

San Diego's signing of free agent Alexei Ramirez to a one-year deal on Thursday gives the team a potential placeholder until top prospect Javier Guerra is ready for the majors. MLB rumors roundup

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

So the San Diego Padres signed Alexei Ramirez to fill their gaping hole at shortstop. While Ramirez had been a valuable asset in the past for the White Sox, he was barely a replacement-level shortstop in 2015 with a .285 OBP while losing a step on defense. Considering he's 34 and moving to a tougher home run park, I wouldn't bet on much of a bounce back and he's likely just a one-year stopgap for the Padres.
