News: Wallace signed a one-year contract with the Padres and avoided arbitration.
Impact: Wallace was called up from Triple-A El Paso during the 2015 season by the Padres, which was the first big league action he had since his time with the Astros in 2013. He slashed .302/.374/.521 in 107 plate appearances, thanks in part to an unsustainably high .400 BABIP. His signing is an indication that he is on track to a part of the team's Opening Day roster in 2016.
