Peoria, AZ- Mike Johnston is on the road to recovery – hoping to regain the plus fastball that earned him trips to the major leagues with Pittsburgh in 2004 and 2005. After missing all of 2007, Johnston is working towards opening eyes in the San Diego Padres system with a fastball that once clocked in consistently in the mid-90s.

Peoria, AZ- Four San Diego Padres regulars were on the field for the Triple-A game at the Peoria Sports Complex on Tuesday. Greg Maddux took the hill for five and Adrian Gonzalez, Kevin Kouzmanoff and Josh Bard took their turns in the box and the field. It was, however, the minor leaguers who drove in all the runs.
