Padres 2010 extended spring roster

The San Diego Padres have a full roster and more sitting down in extended spring training – a development network where the team can spend more time with its prospects in a no-stress environment.

The Padres have a different take to extended than recent years. They are putting an emphasis on younger players that can be developed and placed at the short-season leagues.

Tate is in extended for multiple reasons. He missed out on instructs last year and injured his shoulder, meaning he missed tons of at-bats versus live pitching.

Quiles is also down in extended to receive regular at-bats – something that may not have happened in Fort Wayne with Jason Hagerty getting the bulk of the playing time.

Lollis, Needy, Portillo and Sampson represent a quartet of plus arms that could see time in Fort Wayne, if necessary. Sarria is a Cuban sign that is 22 years old. Ibarra is undergoing a change in his arm slot.

A slew of Dominican prospects is also in Peoria. Velazquez and Lopez represent an advanced pair of position players that Dominican Summer League manager Evaristo Lantigua believes can play in Eugene and do well.
