PEORIA, Ariz. -- Manager Jayce Tingler's first Spring Training at the helm of the Padres is underway.

Thirty-eight pitchers and six catchers reported to Padres camp at the Peoria Sports Complex on Wednesday. Next week, they'll be joined by a full host of position players. In total, 69 Padres are slated to compete for 25 spots on the Opening Day roster.

After some offseason wheeling and dealing, the makeup of that roster should look notably different this season. But it will be a while before Tingler begins making cuts. First, the Padres have 10 days of workouts before their Cactus League slate opens against Seattle.

"Hearing the crack of the bat, watching them move around -- they’re in pretty good spirits," Tingler said. "It’s exciting."

At this time of year, it always is.
