News 
 Carson Kelly went 1-for-2 with a walk, a double, an RBI, and two runs scored Friday against the Rockies.
Connor Rooney
Sat, Mar 7th
AJ Cassavell of MLB.com writes that Francisco Mejia has "looked sharp" early on in Padres summer camp.

Notes 
 Kelly is a popular sleeper at catcher, but I'd like to see his splits even out a bit before fully buying in.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Mejia was a bit of a fantasy disappointment last year but that is often the case with young catchers. He should end up with much more than 226 at-bats this time around and if he does, you can expect 15+ homers to go with a useful batting average.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Kelly was on a roll last season before his injury but still managed to power up for 18 homers in just 314 at-bats. The batting average may end up below .240 but with a full season, 30 homers isn't out of the question for the youngster.
