SAN DIEGO (AP) -Former All-Star catcher Terry Kennedy was hired Friday as hitting coach of the San Diego Padres' Class A affiliate in Lake Elsinore.
The Padres also hired Bronswell Patrick as the pitching coach for the rookie-level Peoria Padres and Duffy Dyer as catching coordinator.
Also Friday, Padres general manager Kevin Towers said he'll likely offer salary arbitration to catcher Michael Barrett, and he expects the player to accept. The Padres probably will offer arbitration to Mike Cameron, but the center fielder is expected to decline. Cameron has been suspended for the first 25 games of next season after testing positive a second time for a banned stimulant.
A four-time All-Star, Kennedy batted .264 in 14 big league seasons with the Cardinals, Padres, Baltimore Orioles and San Francisco Giants.
