C in Padreland

December 9, 2009

Possible Catchers in the Padres future?

With the Marlins declining the $2.6 million option on LH hitting Ross Gload would he make a good backup for Hundley?

With the Rockies declining the $4 million option on Torrealba would he make a good backup in SD?

The Royals declined the $3.3 mil option on Miguel Olivo. He has the best power of the bunch. Would he be a good fit returning to SD?

The Padres could also make trades that could bring back a good young catching prospect.

I have listed the top catching prospects below. Not all are available in trade and some may not be what the Padres are looking for in a catcher. Several play for teams that stand in need of players at positions the Padres have players available to trade.

Minnesota, Philadelphia, and other have a need for either a Closer/Late inning reliever or a Third Baseman.

What trades do you think are possible or coming?
