News 
 AJ Cassavell of MLB.com writes that Francisco Mejia has "looked sharp" early on in Padres summer camp.

Mon, Jul 6th
Travis d'Arnaud went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in his spring debut Wednesday against the Orioles.

Notes 
 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
d'Arnaud is not likely to help with batting average but as long as he can manage to stay healthy, fantasy owners can again expect 15+ homers with 60+ RBIs in this potent Atlanta offense.
