The Padres seem to be overstocked in the outfield, however adding a veteran mind to a young and inexperienced outfield can do no harm. Collin Cowgill, the 30-year-old veteran outfielder, will be among the mix of non-roster invites (Rafael Ortega, Jabari Blash, and Nick Buss) battling for a spot on the major league roster this spring.

Philip Rivers: A True San Diegan
