|Padres boot two from roster |

(3/9/13) The San Diego Padres continued shaping their roster during spring training Saturday and assigned the following players to their minor-league camp: catcher Austin Hedges and starting pitcher Jose De Paula.
|Austin Hedges is one of those prospects who'll show up higher in real-life rankings than Fantasy rankings because of everything he does behind the plate. In terms of receiving, blocking, throwing out base runners and every intangible that would apply to a catcher, he's the bee's knees. In terms of productivity ... well, let's just say he should get better. True, he's only 21, and catchers are notoriously slow to develop, but it takes a special brand of hitter to produce a sub-.400 slugging percentage in a year spent mostly in the heavy-hitting California League, even if he was the youngest full-time catcher there. Is it entirely indicative of his potential? Of course not. Scouts generally like Hedges' stroke and project him for average power, putting his upside somewhere in the neighborhood of A.J. Pierzynski. But while Pierzynski has had and continues to have a quality career, most mixed-league owners would consider him a fringy option. Hedges is a safe long-term keeper since he's sure to play full-time someday, but if Pierzynski is the best he can do, he's not a particularly exciting one.
