Retired major league pitcher Barry Zito has been pursuing a music career since retiring from baseball after the 2015 season. He just put out a music video for the single, titled “Secret to Life,” from his upcoming country music album.
Zito’s music chops aren’t a secret. His father worked with Nat King Cole in the 1960’s and his mother was a singer who also worked with Cole. Zito himself co-wrote a song used in A Thousand Words, a film starring Eddie Murphy that came out four years ago.
Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Padres will place outfielder Franchy Cordero on the 10-day disabled list and activate outfielder Hunter Renfroe from the DL on Monday.
Cordero, 23, has been slumping, batting .140 with four extra-base hits in 47 plate appearances dating back to May 11. The Padres noticed that the forearm issue has been affecting his swing in recent games. Manager Andy Green said, “It was something where he could swing a certain way to manage it. But swinging that way was not him.”
Renfroe, 26, has been out since mid-April due to inflammation in his right elbow. He hit .200/.281/.440 in 57 PA prior to landing on the disabled list. Renfroe played in 10 rehab games with Triple-A El Paso.
