SAN DIEGO (AP) - Mark McGwire was mingling Tuesday with San Diego Padres coaches at Petco Park, where the team was having organizational meetings. The club wouldn't say why.

His appearance came amid speculation that he will be the Padres bench coach.

Various club officials, including new manager Andy Green, declined to confirm that Big Mac has been hired. They didn't deny it, either.

Green said he's "nailed down" his staff. Asked if that included McGwire, he repeated that the staff was "nailed down."

An announcement could come Wednesday.

McGwire would be trading teams with Dave Roberts. Roberts, who had been the Padres bench coach, is the new manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers. McGwire was the Dodgers' hitting coach the last three seasons.
