Former Padres number one pick Matt Bush, who recently converted to pitcher, might be on his way to Atlanta. Bush, who was originally drafted as a shortstop, injured his arm just after taking up pitching. However, Padres GM told me during our first interview that Bush was clocking out in the high-nineties, so he still has potential as a major league pitcher. I do not think this move will have much effect on either team. Bush throws hard, and could make out to be a closer if he can stay healthy. He will be back in 2009, and if he stays on track, could see some MLB time by 2011.
