Player Notes
Padres prospect C Austin Hedges had a big game Wednesday for Triple-A El Paso, going 3-for-4 with his first home run of the 2015 season.

Advice: Hedges, 22, struggled mightily at the plate in 2014, batting just .225/.268/.321 with 27 extra-base hits (six home runs) in 113 games at Double-A San Antonio. He definitely didn’t struggle behind the plate, though, as the defensively gifted backstop posted a 38% caught-stealing rate and committed just six passed balls. The hope is that Hedges’ bat gets back on track this year in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League, as anything he provides offensively will be a bonus.
