    Bud Black knows who he'll be working with on Opening Day.

    On Friday the Padres sent LHP Tommy Layne and IF/OF Kyle Blanks to AAA Tucson. That leaves 32 players in Major League camp.

    However, since six of them will start the season on the disabled list, and one of them will start it on suspension, the 25-man Opening Day roster is set.

    And it goes a little something like this (in numerical order):

    1 Ransom, Cody INF
    2 Cabrera, Everth INF
    4 Hundley, Nick C
    5 Amarista, Alexi INF
    8 Baker, John C
    13 Denorfia, Chris OF
    14 Kotsay, Mark OF
    15 Guzman, Jesus INF
    16 Street, Huston RHP
    18 Quentin, Carlos OF
    21 Marquis, Jason RHP
    23 Alonso, Yonder INF
    24 Maybin, Cameron OF
    25 Venable, Will OF
    33 Richard, Clayton LHP
    34 Cashner, Andrew RHP
    37 Volquez, Edinson RHP
    45 Bass, Anthony RHP
    53 Stults, Eric LHP
    54 Thatcher, Joe LHP
    55 Thayer, Dale RHP
    57 Gregerson, Luke RHP
    58 Brach, Brad RHP
    66 Ross, Tyson RHP
    68 Gyorko, Jedd INF

    A few more interesting notes here are, Tyson Ross was named the 5th starter. Andrew Cashner will be used as a long reliever, not a late-inning specialist, because the Padres still want him to be a starting pitcher.

    Both Cody Ransom and Jedd Gyorko made the team after coming to Spring Training as non-roster invitees.

    Joe Thatcher is the only left-hander in the bullpen.

    The Padres open the season on April 1 in New York against the Mets with Edinson Volquez on the mound.
