Josh Byrnes has been busy.  Yesterday the Padres announced a seven player deal with the Tampa Bay Rays.  We have acquired LHP Alex Torres and RHP Jesse Hahn in exchange for infielders Logan Forsythe and Maxx Tissenbaum as well as RHPs Matt Andriese, Brad Boxberger, and Matt Lollis. Today it was announced that 18 non-roster invitations were issued for Spring Training.
