Padres' Wil Nieves could serve as backup catcher
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/14/15) Padres veteran Wil Nieves is first in line to snag the team's backup catcher role this season, reports UT San Diego.
Nieves slides into the role after Tim Federowicz tore his meniscus, which will keep him sidelined for at least three months. Manager Bud Black couldn't be happier to have someone like Nieves in camp as a possible replacement.
"Actually, a couple of years ago, he had a nice year in Arizona," Black said. "I knew Wil from our days back with the Angels (Black was the Angels' pitching coach when Nieves was with the organization from 2003-04), so I know what he brings to a club. He's going to have to do his thing to show that he's still very capable of being on a big-league club, and he's doing his part. He's doing fine."

|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/3/15) Wil Nieves, who is competing for the Padres' backup catcher role this spring, expressed familiarity with the division's hitters after spending time with the Rockies and Diamondbacks in recent years, MLB.com reports.
"I've played so many years in the NL and have seen many of the same hitters year after year after year, I already know how to pitch most of these guys, especially guys in this division," Nieves said.
Nieves is competing with Tim Federowicz and has the edge in experience in the battle to back up Derek Norris.
"Those three guys have good heads on their shoulders," manager Bud Black said of the three catchers.
Nieves spent 2014 with the Phillies, hitting .254/.270/.344 with one home run in 122 at-bats.
