Chase d’Arnaud has appeared exclusively at shortstop with the Padres, the latest stop in a diverse career that has seen the 30-year-old Orange County native play all over the field – and even a stage at Turner Field. The last week has been whirlwind for the newest Padre, but he set aside time for the Union-Tribune to talk about the Chase d’Arnaud Band, their “Seven Ghosts” album (available at i-Tunes and Spotify) and how music is a much needed outlet for his baseball career.
New Padres utility man Chase d’Arnaud is already playing for this third major league club this season. But, since joining the Padres, he’s made an immediate impact at the plate, and in the field. He spoke with Andrew Burer about his journey to San Diego.
