Padres Make More Roster Announcements

Pitching staff is almost finalized

Padres manager Andy Green revealed a few more pieces of his Opening Day roster on Friday afternoon. Before the Padres played an exhibition game against the White Sox at Petco Park (the first game at the Downtown ballpark in 2016) Green shared good news for three pitchers.

Lefty Drew Pomeranz had earned a spot in the starting rotation. Green was unsure if he'd be the fourth or fifth man to take the ball. Pomeranz was a starter at the beginning of his career with the Rockies but he moved to the bullpen in his two years with the Oakland A's.

Green also said relievers Brandon Maurer and Kevin Quackenbush both have a place on the 25-man roster. The Padres must have their Opening Day roster set before the end of the weekend.
