Not content with giving Russell Branyan the job, the Padres will look to acquire a third baseman. Kevin Towers has said the club is interested in signing Japanese star Akinori Iwamura, a left-handed hitter who batted .311 with 32 home runs and 77 RBI for the Yakult Swallows this year. “Right now, Branyan's our third baseman,” Towers said. “He gives us protection at third. For a million bucks, a guy that versatile with that type of power – it's pretty much a no-brainer.”
