Towers still looking for late inning help

Although we're just a few days away from Opening Day, Padres' GM Kevin Towers is still tinkering with the roster.

According to Corey Brock of, Towers is looking for pitchers to add to their bullpen and especially a late inning power arm that can be the set up man for closer Heath Bell.

The Padres could go with recent addition Duaner Sanchez, who served as a setup man in his days with the Los Angeles Dodgers, or even submarine right-hander Cla Meredith who isn't your prototypical setup man, but he has the stuff to get the job done.

Towers is going to be looking for that player that is out of minor league options or has been placed on waivers already. A move could be made as soon as this afternoon, so keep an eye out for updates as the day progresses.
