Chris Paddack learned he made the Padres roster while on the mound and couldn't contain his joy

Usually when a pitcher is removed from the game, there are grimaces, unrepeatable epithets and a Charlie Brown walk back to the dugout. Things were a little different for Padres pitcher Chris Paddack during some Spring Training action on Monday night.

When manager Andy Green came out to lift the Padres' No. 5 prospect, they had a little chat. At some point, Green must have let it out that Paddack would be on the Opening Day roster because the pitcher couldn't contain a smile as he received claps and pats on the back from his teammates.

Well, it's either that or Green told him that there were ice cream sandwiches waiting in the clubhhouse.
