Padres Watching Outfielders/Clement
Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune wrote an impressive article today, talking about the various activity that the Padres might encounter this offseason. To begin, he believes that San Diego is set to offer a 1-year contract to ex-Brewer Geoff Jenkins. GM Josh Towers has been seeking a left-fielder who can bat left-handed, and Jenkin's agent, Damon Lapa, is quoted saying "It wouldn't be too tough a sell for Geoff to slide in nicely there,”
Krasovic also believes that the Padres are expressing interest in Coco Crisp, but made it clear that the Padres aren't moving Double-A third baseman Chase Headley. If Crisp was to come to San Diego, he might play better being allowed to use his speed in such a spacious park.
Matt Clement, who began his career in San Diego, would like to sign a low-base 1 year contract with a boatload of incentives. Matt is coming off of rotator cuff surgery, but has had some very decent seasons in his career.
