PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) - Chase Headley and the rest of the San Diego Padres' position players reported to spring training Friday. Few, if any, introductions were necessary.
``We kept the group that we had, and it was intentional,'' Padres general manager Josh Byrnes said. ``We have options on the young guys competing and, on the whole, we have our guys locked up beyond this season. If this group can play to its potential, like it did later in last year, it should be together for a while.''
The Padres had an uneventful offseason, perhaps the quietest of all 30 major league teams. In fact, every position player expected to make the opening day roster - other than top-flight prospect Jedd Gyorko - was on the squad last year.
