Righty-swinging Mike Cameron is the Padres' incumbent and has played almost every day out there. He has proven to be a huge addition defensively since he was dealt to San Diego by the Mets last winter for Xavier Nady, who is no longer with New York. Cameron has also had his moments at the plate and is a potent force down lower in the lineup.It's hard to downplay Jim Edmonds, but he's had a rocky last month after smacking his head on the center-field fence and suffering through post-concussion syndrome. Yet he came back much sooner than expected and the gamer he is will certainly be a force. Wilson is in the mix here if Edmonds can't go. So is Juan Encarnacion.
