Short hops

• Center fielder Cameron Maybin, slowed the last week due to a sore right wrist, will likely get into his first Cactus League game on Sunday. Maybin, who has had issues with his right wrist each of the past two seasons, has participated in some drills. Maybin has had a cortisone shot and said Saturday that his wrist was feeling considerably better.

• The Padres scored five runs in the bottom of the ninth inning in Saturday's 8-6 loss to Seattle, as reserve infielder Jeudy Valdez hit a two-run home run. Valdez also doubled earlier in the game.

"We had some good swings in the ninth," manager Bud Black said.

Valdez, 23, was designated for assignment earlier this month when the team claimed pitcher Fautino De Los Santos off waivers from the Brewers. But no team put in a claim for Valdez.
