Padres designate RHP Blaine Boyer and OF Yeison Asencio for assignment.

Boyer had a 3.57 ERA last season for the Padres, so he should have no problem finding a major league deal with another club over the winter. It seems as though the reason Boyer was cut was due to salary and little else.

Padres add RHP Tayron Guerrero, OF Alex Dickerson and INF Taylor Lindsey to 40-man roster.

The Padres chose to protect these three players by adding them to their 40-man roster. None of these players will crack the Padres' opening day roster, but both Dickerson and Lindsey could be midseason call ups for San Diego.

Eric Stults has elected free agency after being outrighted to Triple-A El Paso.

At age 34, no one wants to be bogged down in the minors so Stults made his decision to test the free agent market in hopes to make one last run at "The Show".

The Padres reportedly posted the top bid for Korean lefty Kwang-Hyun Kim.

The Padres bid came in at $2 million. The team that Kim put together was looking for $10 million through the posting process, so it's unclear whether they will accept. Kim is 26 years old and posted a 3.33 ERA and 139/81 K/BB ratio just over 167 innings of work in the KBO. It's believed that he could be a back-end starter or a bullpen arm in the states.

Padres are working to re-sign Josh Johnson, who didn't pitch at all for them last year after needing Tommy John surgery.

The Padres declined their $4 million option on him for 2015, but it looks like they are inteersted in bringing the veteran back but for a lesser salary. Not many teams are even willing to touch Johnson with his injury past.

Padres have re-signed minor league SS Diego Goris.

Goris is a defensive-minded middle infielder who hit just .247 in his first year at the Double-A level. There's not a whole lot of offensive upside here though so he's only got a smidgen of value in the deepest of dynasty leagues.

Everth Cabrera has been charged with resisting arrest after being stopped for suspicion of driving under the influence of marijuana.

Cabrera struggled this season hitting .232 over 90 games as he was limited for a majority of the season with a variety of injuries.

Padres designated RHP Donn Roach and LHP Eric Stults for assignment.

Both players are going to begin the season in the minor leagues unless they have a very strong spring training.
Analyst: Mark Kaplan  View Profile

Roach appeared in 16 games last season, and put up a 4.75 ERA and 1.68 WHIP over 30.1 innings. His K/BB ratio was not stellar, sitting at 17:15 in the majors. Stults stumbled in the first half of 2014, but turned things around in August and September. The team apparently decided that two months of value was not enough to keep him on the major league roster.

Adam Moore refused his outright assignment by the Padres on Monday and will become a free agent.

Moore has barely played for the Padres and seems to be nothing more than a minor league player at this point in his career.
