After the Baltimore Orioles changed their mind - er - found medical evidence of injury issues resulting in the revocation of their contract offer to Grant Balfour, the former Athletics' closer is...

Padres not shopping Huston Street

Padres not likely to trade Maybin

15

More speculation than rumor, but don't expect the Padres to trade Cameron Maybin anytime soon.

Patrick Schuster answers your questions

9

He's not just some guy who you thought was going to be a different guy who is coming to the Padres after a weird trade by another guy (last guy is Josh Byrnes, keeping up?). He's a fans' player.

FanFest will be February 8th

10

Mark it down. Be there. It'll probably be fun.

Padres negotiating with Benoit

76

Just when you thought the Padres offseason was a little boring, the team is now making a push for free agent Joaquin Benoit.

Padres interested in Dustin Ackley

10

The San Diego Padres heard your complaints. You thought they weren't doing enough, so GM Josh Byrnes thought he'd ratchet it up a bit by trading Anthony Bass for a Rule 5 pick. But don't worry,...

Baker out 'til July

+

The Chicago Cubs suffered a blow when Scott Baker started having elbow trouble this spring. Now, he's been diagnosed with a muscle strain and is unlikely to return until July.

Hanley to miss two months?

+

After a diving play at third base in the WBC finale, Hanley Ramirez injured his right thumb. Now, the Dodgers fear he could miss up to two months.

Bryce's burritos frenzy

+

Bryce Harper is not only one of the best up-and-coming young players in baseball, he also gets free delicious burritos. How? Because Chipotle has initiated him into the FBS (free burrito society).

Jeter to the DL?

+

Derek Jeter's inflammation may cause the Yankees' star to miss the start of the season and possibly even land him on the disabled list.

Quentin ready for OD?

+

Carlos Quentin, the driving force (along with Chase Headley) to the Padres' impressive second half last season, is feeling more like he'll be ready for Opening Day than not. That's good, right?
