Padres have signed C Griff Erickson to a minor league deal.

Erickson will provide positional depth for the organization but he's probably nothing more than a third catcher option for the team. And that's if he can crack the 25-man roster which will be a very difficult feat for him.

Padres have signed LHP Jason Lane to a minor league deal.

He'll serve as organizational depth, most likely, and should get an invite to spring training. No fantasy value here though.

Padres RHP Blaine Boyer cleared waivers, was outrighted to Triple-A El Paso and has elected free agency.

The journeyman will be taking his chances on the free agent market and hopes to settle down with an eighth team in his nine year career. He pitched well for the Padres last season but still holds no fantasy value.

Yeison Asencio cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A El Paso.

Ascencio hit .291 with 67 runs, 15 home runs and 59 RBI over 138 games between Double-A and Triple-A for the Padres organization last year.

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.
