San Diego Padres P Joe Wieland (elbow) is still hopeful he can pitch in winter ball, getting a jump-start on the 2014 season. He is making his way back from a pair of reconstructive elbow surgeries.

San Diego Padres SP Joe Wieland (elbow) will play catch off a mound Monday, March 25, after undergoing Tommy John surgery last July. He's been throwing from 150 feet and will have two more sessions of that length before next Monday. Wieland is optimistic that he'll pitch in a game this season.
Fantasy Tip: Wieland has the skills to be a mainstay in San Diego's rotation down the line. Keeper leaguers need to tuck his name away for the 2014 season and beyond.
