Black back with Padres despite playoff drought

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Arguably the worst year in San Diego Padres history ended with an eighth straight season out of the playoffs and manager Bud Black still employed.

Now it's new general manager A.J. Preller's turn to start putting his stamp on a team that has good pitching, is in desperate need of impact bats and continues to struggle early in the season and then plays well when it's too late to matter.

Other than Black's status, Preller was short on specifics when he met with reporters Monday.

Black is under contract for 2015, meaning the Padres will at some point have to discuss an extension or part ways with their skipper since 2007.
