NL West Notes: Gonzalez, Dodgers, Padres

Here's a look at the latest out of the National League West..

  • Cuban right-hander Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, who has drawn the attention of the Dodgers, has been declared a free agent and will have a showcase in Tijuana, Mexico on June 20th, a source tells Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com (via Twitter).  The Cubs, Rangers, Twins and Red Sox have also been linked to the promising hurler.
  • Yasiel Puig is the talk of the baseball world and his Arizona League manager had some very high praise for him, writes Scott Miller of CBSSports.com.  "I said, 'He's [reigning NFL MVP] Adrian Peterson.' That's how much God-given ability this guy has," Martin said. "That's the comparison I had to give. He's Adrian Peterson."
  • On the heels of the 2013 draft, MLB.com's Corey Brock took a peek into the Padres' war room.  With the No. 13 overall pick in the draft, San Diego tapped Mississippi State outfielder Hunter Renfroe.
