Padres Interested In Loretta, Iguchi

The Padres have gotten a woeful .244/.315/.328 line out of their second baseman, most of it from Marcus Giles.  They're starting to work Geoff Blum in more often, but it's a clear area for an upgrade.

The two names on the radar, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune, are Mark Loretta and Tadahito Iguchi

Iguchi's slugging percentage is down this year, mostly from an awful May.  But he still represents an upgrade on Giles. 

The more versatile Loretta is hitting .297/.373/.390 this year; he's done a nice job drawing walks.  Loretta pushed to sign with the Padres, but Kevin Towers stood him up.  Now the Friars have come crawling back.  The problem is that the Phillies and Mets have sustained injuries to their second basemen and could get in on him.
