Padres manager squashes beef between catchers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2013) 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.


Nick Hundley has harsh words for Yasmani Grandal


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2013) 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.

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.

Nick Hundley knocks in two


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2013) 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.


Nick Hundley a viable waiver claim


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2013) I understand Fantasy owners are hesitant to make a long-term investment in Padres catcher Nick Hundley since Yasmani Grandal will return from his 50-game suspension at the end of May, but there's no harm in making a short-term investment, especially if you have the need at catcher or an extra bench spot.

I'm convinced Hundley's down season in 2012 was because of his knee injury. He's healthy again in 2013 and his confidence seems restored. He had a stellar spring (.358/3 HRs/7 2Bs/10 RBI) and has carried that into the regular season. Hundley is the 11th-highest scoring Fantasy catcher heading into Sunday's game and is owned in less than 10 percent of leagues. That seems like a bargain buy to me if I've ever seen one.


Nick Hundley starting to heat up


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2013) A day after hitting his first home run of the season, Padres catcher Nick Hundley tied a career-high with four hits Wednesday against the Dodgers. He was 4 for 4 with a run and a double.

Hundley, who is starting for the suspended Yasmani Grandal, is batting .318 (7 for 22) with two doubles and two RBI in six games. 


Nick Hundley hits first HR since May 2012


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2013) Padres catcher Nick Hundley hit his first home run of the season Tuesday against the Dodgers. Hundley homered for the first time since May 24, 2012, reports MLB.com. 

A month after that last HR, Hundley was sent to Triple-A Tucson and eventually underwent knee surgery. 

Back starting for San Diego's, Hundley was 2 for 16 before leading off the bottom of the fifth inning with the solo homer off Josh Beckett. 


Nick Hundley off to another slow start


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2013) Padres catcher Nick Hundley did not get his season off to a hot start in his opener against the Mets, and it seems he has a history of starting slowly, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune

Hundley, who went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts Monday, went hitless in his first 21 at-bats with eight strikeouts last season. 

He had a solid spring training, however, batting .358 over 53 at-bats with three homers and 10 RBI. Hundley is trying to overcome a terrible 2012 in which he batted just .157 over 204 at-bats. 


What to make of Nick Hundley?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2013) Take a look at what Padres catcher Nick Hundley is doing this spring.

Through 16 games, he's batting .429 (18 for 42) with three homers, seven doubles and 10 RBI. He definitely seems determined after a hugely disappointing season in 2012, which eventually saw Hundley give way to prospect Yasmani Grandal.

Now that Grandal will miss the start of the season due to a 50-game suspension, Hundley appears poised to reclaim his starting job. Let's not forget that Padres locked up Hundley following his breakout 2011 season, so it's not like San Diego doesn't believe in the 29-year-old backstop.

But now we have to assess whether or not Hundley's stellar spring is a precusor to a bounce-back season? Sadly, I don't think we can put much stock into it. Though Hundley had monster numbers in the spring of 2011 (.439/.465/.756), he also had great numbers last spring (.432/.475/.649) and we all know how his season went. Although, his problems had a lot to do with his health, so perhaps Hundley is poised for a bounce-back year.

Still, Fantasy owners have to worry about Grandal's eventual return. While he's expected to miss the first two months of the season, he should work his way back into the mix once active. Unless Hundley has turned into the best hitter in the majors, then it's hard to imagine the Padres turning their back on Grandal. Hundley still needs to be viewed as just a late-round Fantasy flier in deeper formats Draft Day.
