This winter, the Padres’ solution at shortstop might be more than a one-year stopgap. Free-agent Zack Cozart, who spent the past seven seasons with Cincinnati, has been linked to the Padres through reports. But the Padres have some talented prospects on the way that could change the way they look at the position for 2018.
Three once-in-a-lifetime Padres experiences are up for grabs this week. Want to meet Wil Myers and Austin Hedges, dine with Trevor Hoffman or learn to hit from Mark McGwire?

Two-way Japanese phenom Shohei Ohtani has moved to the front burner of the Hot Stove for the Padres. But there are a number of other items on general manager A.J. Preller’s agenda with the Winter Meetings set to begin Monday in Orlando, Fla.
