San Diego Padres

6 pressing questions for Padres to answer


The Padres signed Kim to a four-year deal out of Korea during the offseason, and he should get the bulk of the starts at shortstop while Tatis is on the injured list.


Padres center fielder Trent Grisham is expected to be activated on Friday after spending the first week on the injured list with a left hamstring strain.


If the Padres were to give swingman Ryan Weathers a start against Pittsburgh, it would bump Snell from that mix in favor of Chris Paddack.


(If Nabil Crismatt is optioned to clear space for either Pierce Johnson or Austin Adams, that would leave Weathers as the team's only long man.)


Lamet needed just 36 pitches to get through three innings in his most recent alt-site game, as he recovers from the UCL strain that cost him the postseason last year.


Adrian Morejon won Lamet's vacant rotation spot with an excellent Spring Training, where he was much sharper than Paddack, the team’s No.
