Padres have to decide by Monday night on Josh Johnson's option.

Johnson missed all of the 2014 season due to Tommy John surgery and has an $4 million option to be picked up by the Padres for the coming season.

Padres' General Manager A.J. Preller has started interviewing hitting coach candidates for the upcoming season. He intends to hire two.

The Padres were the worst offensive team in baseball by most measures. The Padres' first order of business was firing incumbent hitting coach Phil Planter last week, and now they'll begin their search for a two-headed hitting coach beast to revamp their offense. No candidates, much less favorites, have emerged, but it's a story to watch as we head into the offseason. Preller has some talent to work with, and it'll be interesting to see the direction the team takes under new management.

Padres field coordinator Randy Johnson and hitting coordinator Sean Berry will not return next season.

The Padres will have to replace both Johnson (no, not the pitcher), and Berry before the season starts, but neither are vital to the team and their absence likely won't have much of an effect on the Padres team. Hopefully a new hitting coordinator will help the Padres hit better, after the team was historically terrible last season.

Josh Johnson played catch last Thursday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery.

Johnson was sideline after throwing only 13 pitches in spring training. It is yet to be determined whether the Padres will pick up his option or not. It is very possible that Johnson could be a free agent moving into the 2015 season.

Troy Patton has elected free agency rather than his outright assignment.

There is a lot of that going around Sunday. We will let you know if anyone important becomes a free agent.

Bud Black will return as the Padres manager in 2015. 

That will be Black's ninth year as the San Diego manager, and while he has not yet made a post-season appearance while leading the Padres, the team did play over .500 since the All Star break, going 32-27.

Robbie Erlin dropped to 4-5 after giving up four runs on four hits and two walks with a strikeout over 1.2 innings in the Padres loss to the Giants on Sunday. 

Erlin really struggled in his last start of the 2014 gauntlet. He only threw 35 pitches, and didn't make it out of the second inning of the contest. This isn't the way he wanted to end 2014, but he closes out the campaign with a 4-5 record, and a 4.99 ERA. He went unowned in many fantasy leagues, and that will be the case heading into 2015.

Eric Stults allowed just one run on six hits with no walks and five strikeouts over seven innings against the Giants on Saturday.

Stults has really turned his season around after a horrid first half, as has a 2.94 ERA since a six run implosion on July 27th. While he still holds a 4.30 ERA and 1.38 WHIP, he's finished his season on a high note and will look to bounce back next season.
