News: Wallace was reassigned to minor league camp Saturday, the Union-Tribune's Dennis Lin reports.
Impact: This doesn't come as a surprise as Wallace, 28, was a non-roster invitee to spring training. Look for the former marginal prospect to spend most, if not all, of 2015 playing first base at Triple-A El Paso.

News: Wallace, a non-roster invitee to Padres' camp, could earn a spot on the bench with the major league club, Jeff Sanders of the Union-Tribune.
Impact: Wallace spent the 2014 season in the Astros and Blue Jays farm systems. At 28, he's contending for a reserve role for San Diego. Manager Bud Black was quoted as saying, "I think there's a natural hitter to this guy that might lend himself to the National League as a bench player...there's a lot to like about him." It's a tall order for Wallace to make the major league club, but if he does, he'll add some left handed power off the bench.
