|Padres manager squashes beef between catchers|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(12:25 pm ET) In early May, Padres catcher Nick Hundley was very critical of teammate Yasmani Grandal, who is on the verge of returning from a 50-game suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs. However, manager Bud Black said during an interview with MLB Network Radio that the incident has been handled.
"Nick Hundley's quotes are in the past," Black said. "I talked to them both, then they spoke. They're all good."
Hundley is expected to share the catching duties once Grandal's suspension ends.

(5/9/13) Padres catcher Nick Hundley did not have positive things to say about teammate Yasmani Grandal.
Grandal is set to return from his suspension in three weeks, and could usurp the starting role from Hundley.
When asked about Grandal Wednesday, Hundley responded by calling out the young catcher. "You want to talk about a guy who is unproven and had a good couple months on steroids, go ahead."
Hundley added that he hasn't thought about losing playing time once Grandal comes back. Hundley is hitting .270/.302/.450 in 100 at-bats this year.
Manager Bud Black said both catchers will get playing time once Grandal returns. He said the starting job will be based on performance.

(5/1/13) Padres catcher Nick Hundley continued his hot hitting Tuesday night against the Cubs. Hundley had three hits in the 13-7 win, including a three-run home run off reliever Hector Rondon in the eighth inning.
He also singled and doubled to finish 3 for 5 with three RBI and two runs scored.
Hundley has hit safely in nine of the past 11 games and is batting .357 (15 for 42) with two home runs, three doubles and eight RBI over that span.

(4/29/13) Padres catcher Nick Hundley enjoyed a nice day at the plate as he launched his second home run of the season during Sunday's series finale against the Giants.
Hundley took starter Ryan Vogelsong deep for a two-run home run in the second inning. He finished 2 for 4 with one run scored and two RBI in a 6-4 victory.
Hundley is hitting .314/.347/.500 with two homers and eight RBI in 70 at-bats.
|Nick Hundley knocks in two|
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(4/17/13) Padres catcher Nick Hundley had two RBI and went 2 for 3 Tuesday against the Dodgers.
Hundley doubled, walked and scored a run as well. After a brutal 2012 season in which Hundley hit .157/.219/.245 in 225 plate appearances, Hundley is rebounding well in 2013. Tuesday's performance has his overall line up to .325/.349/.550.
|Heading into 2012, Nick Hundley seemed like he had a hold on the Padres' starting catcher job. No, he wasn't an All-Star-caliber player, but he was coming off a career-high .824 OPS and looked like he'd be able to hold off newly acquired prospect Yasmani Grandal for at least a year or so. But then, when the games actually started, he was nothing short of disastrous. The Padres stuck it out with him for three months before turning the page to Grandal, who was hitting .323 between two minor-league stops, and the rest was history. Or so it seemed. With the news this offseason that Grandal will miss the first 50 games of 2013 for PED use, Hundley gets the second chance of a lifetime. Granted, Grandal was so successful as a rookie that Hundley doesn't have a legitimate chance of winning the job back from him, but if he can get his batting average back up in the .250 range during those first two months Grandal is out, he has enough pop to factor in leagues that require the use of two catchers. Particularly in NL-only formats, Hundley is worth a look on Draft Day. (Updated 1/2/13)|
