Federowicz Questions Will Soon Be Resolved

Photo: San Diego U-T As the MLB trade deadline lingers just ahead, many have ventured to say that not a single player on the San Diego Padres is truly “safe” until July 31 passes.

The next time Josh Johnson takes the mound in a major-league game will be a surreal experience for him – and not just because he hasn't taken the hill since 2013.

Justin Upton is on the market. Who wants him?

Seeing as the San Diego Padres have failed to meet expectations in 2015, their status as sellers at the trade deadline comes as no surprise. They added several key free agents last winter and none of them seemed to mesh. Thus, the team has a lot of valuable assets to offer a team in contention. Of those assets, outfielder Justin Upton is the most intriguing. Now in his 9th season...

It was either going to be a spectacular success or a spectacular failure; either way, it’d be spectacular. Things haven’t gone exactly as general manager A.J. Preller planned. The Padres are putrid on offense...
