• Padres GM Preller slapped with 30-day ban


    LOS ANGELES: Major League Baseball suspended San Diego Padres general manager A.J. Preller on Thursday (Friday in Manila) for 30 days following a review of pitcher Drew Pomeranz’s trade to the Boston Red Sox in July. The American sports network ESPN reported that the Padres tried to hide medical information about their players, including some who were on the trading block, from the league’s head office and other teams. Boston acquired the 27-year-old Pomeranz from the Padres on July 14, giving up 18-year-old pitcher Anderson Espinoza in return. The Padres denied any wrongdoing.
