Tucson Padres Are Back Home Today!

Posted By on Thu, Apr 28, 2011 at 10:40 AM

As we note in this week's feature story, the T-Pads start a four-game homestand today at Kino Stadium. Tonight is Thirsty Thursday, co-sponsored by your friends at the Tucson Weekly, and we're real excited about Saturday's Turn Back The Clock Night, which will take the Padres over to Hi Corbett Field. If you have fond memories of the Tucson Toros, you'll want to be there. Details on the homestand here.

Another Padres tidbit: San Diego Padres GM Jed Hoyer talks about Tucson Padres slugger Anthony Rizzo:

Hoyer and his team have talked about all their options in the minor leagues. With Anthony Rizzo, "there is development left." Rizzo is "undercooked", they want him to be ready. "I think he's going to be a very good Padre, but that time isn't today." Money isn't an issue, the focus is on development. "Big Leagues can humble you in a hurry." The goal is to bring him up for good, not bring him up and have to send him back to the minors. Freddie Freeman is a very comparable to Anthony Rizzo, but he had 500 plate appearances int he minor leagues before being brought up the Braves.
