Zawadzki carted off field today

Tuesday March 2, 2010

Dan Hayes of the North County Times reported that the San Diego Padres top middle infield prospect Lance Zawadzki sprained his ankle today and had to leave the field on a cart.

Lets hope its not serious. Depending on how he responds in his first shot at AAA, Zawadzki may be first in line for a call up if David Eckstein or Jerry Hairston Jr. gets hurt this season.

The Padres signed Jesse Josh Barfield to a minor league deal to provide some depth at 2B and former top prospect Matt Antonelli is still in the Padres system (presumably at AAA Portland), but of late I have been hearing Zawadzki’s name mentioned more when the conversation turns to the Padres future at 2B.

In related news, Dan Hayes tweeted that Logan Forsythe will see time at 2B in spring training.
