Jed Hoyer finally did something!
According to mlbtraderumors.com and a twitter post by Corey Brock of MLB.com the Padres signed CF Chris Denorfia to a minor league contract.
Denorfia, 29, (you are excused for saying WHO? No one else knows who is he is either.) has 208 career abs in parts of 4 seasons for the Reds and A's. He hits for middlin' average (.279), has no power (3 hr), and is a below average fielder.
Denorfia DOES bat right handed and plays CF, so is he the player Hoyer is bringing in to platoon with Gwynn? Or is he just organizational filler?
Lets hope he is just filler and Hoyer has a rabbit up his sleeve.
