The Associated Press has reported, Padres 2009 1st round draft pick Donovan Tate, will not be reporting to Spring Training for “personal reasons”.
Vice president of player development Randy Smith had this to say:
“There’s Donavan the ball player and Donavan the person,” Smith said. “He needs to work on one before he can work on the other.”
Tate’s development has been hampered by untimely injuries and twice testing positive for cannabis.
