Rookie Watch: Josh Barfield

barfield.jpg Josh Barfield is the son of former Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Jesse Barfield and the starting secondbaseman for the San Diego Padres. Interestingly Josh was born in December of 1982 in Venezuela, perhaps Jesse was down there for Winter ball after completing his first full big league season with Toronto. Papa Barfield’s best year was in 1986 when he hit 40 homers, drove in 108 runs, and scored 107 runs, he also had a cannon in RF 22 assists in 1985 & 20 in 1986. Josh is off to a good start, batting .277, with three homers, and six steals, in only 29 games thus far for the Padres.
