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.
Chase d'Arnaud has a brother in the Big Leagues, plays in a band and can break out in an impromptu dance at any moment. Oh yeah -- he's pretty good at baseball, too.
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.
In his month-long stint with Boston, Chase was nothing less than perfect:
Two times on base – scoring two runs
One at-bat – one hit
One inning in the field – one putout, one assist, one double play
