PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — San Diego Padres outfielder Tommy Pham is expected to have an everyday role this season.

But first he has some catching up to do as he deals with a side injury that has factored into the decision to limit him to at-bats as a designated hitter in spring training games.

Pham acknowledges he has a long way to go with a little over three weeks until opening day.
