Padres Eyeing Mike Sweeney

The Padres "have expressed mild interest" in Mike Sweeney, according to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick.  The problem would be finding a fit for Sweeney.  First base or left field would be the logical choices but between the presence of Adrian Gonzalez and Sweeney's fragility, both seem a long shot.  And there's no fit at catcher either, if you really want to stretch your imagination.

Crasnick notes that Padres GM Kevin Towers has found the talks for Xavier Nady or Matt Murton to be "slow going," so maybe he's trying to get creative.

Sweeney, 35, has been a Royal his entire career.  He hasn't topped 100 games or an .800 OPS since '05.  It was said in mid-December that Sweeney's agent had been in touch with the Royals and two other teams.
