BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-03-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Jason, thanks for the chat! What prospects do you like to take large leaps up the rankings during this season?
(Jon KK from Elkhart, Ind.)
Jonathan Singleton, Brad Boxberger, Mikie Mahtook, Kolten Wong (Jason Collette)
2012-02-23 11:00:00 (link to chat)What rookies do you see making an impact for the Padres this season? Spangenberg? Grandal? Gyorko?
(Michael from Green Bay)
Spangenberg is pretty far away. I wouldn't expect to see him up before mid-2014 at the earliest. The other two could see action in San Diego this year, but probably as September callups. Impact this year? Yonder Alonso will start at first base. Maybe Brad Boxberger in the 'pen. Alonso is the best bet. (Geoff Young)
2012-02-23 11:00:00 (link to chat)Is Brad Boxberger the Closer by the end of the year? Any chance he starts the year in the Bullpen? Thanks
(jake1m from Jenny Lind, Ca.)
Boxberger will compete for a spot in the bullpen. Whether he makes the big club out of spring training or not, he'll see material time with the Padres in 2012. I'm not sure he'll be the closer. If Huston Street is traded at some point, I'm guessing that Andrew Cashner or maybe Ernesto Frieri would be next in line, although Cashner's health and Frieri's control raise questions. (Geoff Young)
