The team does not want to move Mark Loretta from second to third after he returns from surgery on his left thumb, probably near the end of July. The Padres would like to upgrade at third, perhaps with a player such as Indians IF Jose Hernandez or Diamondbacks IF Alex Cintron if they can't get Reds 3B Joe Randa. The Diamondbacks have little interest in trading Cintron.
Wow. When Jose Hernandez or Alex Cintron is an upgrade, you know your third basemen sucks.
