Duaner Sanchez snatched up by Padres

As if to answer the bullpen issues, KT makes what could be a key find and nice addition to Petco's arsenal.

PEORIA, Ariz. -- When asked Tuesday how surprised he was that the Mets gave him his outright release last week, new Padres relief pitcher Duaner Sanchez didn't hesitate for a second in formulating a response.

"One hundred percent," Sanchez said.

It's been a whirlwind week for Sanchez, who signed a Minor League deal to pitch for the Padres just five days after being dumped by the Mets, who expressed concerns about the velocity the 29-year-old right-hander had shown thus far.

Play Ball !!!
