FANTASY BASEBALL NEWS: PADRES "MOVING CLOSER" TO SIGNING IAN DESMOND

The San Diego Padres are "moving closer" to signing free agent shortstop Ian Desmond to a contract according to a team source connected to the front office.  The Padres and Desmond have been talking about terms of a potential contract going back to the start of free agency and over the last two weeks are starting to make progress according to the source. 

Analysis:  This makes sense for both parties as the Padres will take advantage of the depressed market for Desmond who comes off a horrid 2015 where his offensive numbers sank and his defense was atrocious.  The Padres meanwhile are rebuilding off their disappointing 2015 campaign after bringing in scores of veteran players.
